+Git v1.9.3 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v1.9.2
+------------------
+
+ * "git p4" dealing with changes in binary files were broken by a
+ change in 1.9 release.
+
+ * The shell prompt script (in contrib/), when using the PROMPT_COMMAND
+ interface, used an unsafe construct when showing the branch name in
+ $PS1.
+
+ * "git rebase" used a POSIX shell construct FreeBSD /bin/sh does not
+ work well with.
+
+ * Some more Unicode codepoints defined in Unicode 6.3 as having
+ zero width have been taught to our display column counting logic.
+
+ * Some tests used shell constructs that did not work well on
+ FreeBSD.

+========================

+------------------
+
+ * Commands that take pathspecs on the command line misbehaved when
+ the pathspec is given as an absolute pathname (which is a
+ practice not particularly encouraged) that points at a symbolic
+ link in the working tree.
+
+ * An earlier fix to the shell prompt script (in contrib/) for using
+ the PROMPT_COMMAND interface did not correctly check if the extra
+ code path needs to trigger, causing the branch name not to appear
+ when 'promptvars' option is disabled in bash or PROMPT_SUBST is
+ unset in zsh.

+Git v2.1 Release Notes
+======================
+
+Updates since v2.0
+------------------
+
+UI, Workflows & Features
+
+ * "git commit --date=<date>" option learned to read from more
+ timestamp formats, including "--date=now".
+
+ * "git grep" learned grep.fullname configuration variable to force
+ "--full-name" to be default. This may cause regressions on
+ scripted users that do not expect this new behaviour.
+
+ * "git merge" without argument, even when there is an upstream
+ defined for the current branch, refused to run until
+ merge.defaultToUpstream is set to true. Flip the default of that
+ configuration variable to true.
+
+ * "git mergetool" learned to drive the vimdiff3 backend.
+
+ * mergetool.prompt used to default to 'true', always asking "do you
+ really want to run the tool on this path?". Among the two
+ purposes this prompt serves, ignore the use case to confirm that
+ the user wants to view particular path with the named tool, and
+ redefine the meaning of the prompt only to confirm the choice of
+ the tool made by the autodetection (for those who configured the
+ tool explicitly, the prompt shown for the latter purpose is
+ simply annoying).
+
+ Strictly speaking, this is a backward incompatible change and the
+ users need to explicitly set the variable to 'true' if they want
+ to resurrect the now-ignored use case.
+
+ * "git svn" learned to cope with malformed timestamps with only one
+ digit in the hour part, e.g. 2014-01-07T5:01:02.048176Z, emitted
+ by some broken subversion server implementations.
+
+
+Performance, Internal Implementation, etc.
+
+ * "git diff" that compares 3-or-more trees (e.g. parents and the
+ result of a merge) have been optimized.
+
+ * The API to update/delete references are being converted to handle
+ updates to multiple references in a transactional way. As an
+ example, "update-ref --stdin [-z]" has been updated to use this
+ API.
+
+
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
+
+
+Fixes since v2.0
+----------------
+
+Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v2.0 in the maintenance
+track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases'
+notes for details).
+
+ * "--ignore-space-change" option of "git apply" ignored the spaces
+ at the beginning of line too aggressively, which is inconsistent
+ with the option of the same name "diff" and "git diff" have.
+ (merge 14d3bb4 jc/apply-ignore-whitespace later to maint).

+ timestamps, resulting in jaggy left-side-edge of the source code
+ lines in its output.

+ (merge de3d8bb fc/rerere-conflict-style later to maint).
+
+ * "git status", even though it is a read-only operation, tries to

+ race with a "read-write" operation that modify the index while it
