GIT v1.5.4 Release Notes
========================
 
Updates since v1.5.3
--------------------
 
 * Comes with much improved gitk.
 
 * "progress display" from many commands are a lot nicer to the
   eye.  Transfer commands show throughput data.
 
 * git-reset is now built-in and its output can be squelched with -q.
 
 * git-send-email can optionally talk over ssmtp and use SMTP-AUTH.
 
 * git-rebase learned --whitespace option.
 
 * git-remote knows --mirror mode.
 
 * git-merge can call the "post-merge" hook.
 
 * git-pack-objects can optionally run deltification with multiple threads.
 
 * git-archive can optionally substitute keywords in files marked with
   export-subst attribute.
 
 * git-for-each-ref learned %(xxxdate:<dateformat>) syntax to
   show the various date fields in different formats.
 
 * git-gc --auto is a low-impact way to automatically run a
   variant of git-repack that does not lose unreferenced objects
   (read: safer than the usual one) after the user accumulates
   too many loose objects.
 
 * You need to explicitly set clean.requireForce to "false" to allow
   git-clean to do any damage (lack of the configuration variable
   used to mean "do not require", but we now use the safer default).
 
 * git-push has been rewritten in C.
 
 * git-push learned --dry-run option to show what would happen
   if a push is run.
 
 * git-remote learned "rm" subcommand.
 
 * git-rebase --interactive mode can now work on detached HEAD.
 
 * git-cvsserver can be run via git-shell.
 
 * git-am and git-rebase are far less verbose.
 
 * git-pull learned to pass --[no-]ff option to underlying git-merge.
 
 * Various Perforce importer updates.
 
 * git-lost-found was deprecated in favor of git-fsck's --lost-found
   option.
 
 * "git log" learned --early-output option to help interactive
   GUI implementations.
 
 * git-svnimport was removed in favor of git-svn.
 
 * git-bisect learned "skip" action to mark untestable commits.
 
 * git-format-patch learned "format.numbered" configuration variable
   to automatically turn --numbered option on when more than one
   commits are formatted.
 
 * git-ls-files learned "--exclude-standard" to use the canned
   set of exclude files.
 
 * git-rebase now detaches head during its operation, so after a
   successful "git rebase" operation, the reflog entry branch@{1}
   for the current branch points at the commit before the rebase
   was started.
 
 * "git-tag -a -f existing" begins the editor session using the
   existing annotation message.
 
 * "git cvsexportcommit" learned -w option to specify and switch
   to the CVS working directory.
 
 * "git checkout" from a subdirectory learned to use "../path"
   to allow checking out a path outside the current directory
   without cd'ing up.
 
 * Output processing for '--pretty=format:<user format>' has
   been optimized.
 
 * Rename detection diff family, while detecting exact matches,
   has been greatly optimized.
 
 * Example update and post-receive hooks have been improved.
 
 * In addition there are quite a few internal clean-ups. Notably
 
   - many fork/exec have been replaced with run-command API,
     brought from the msysgit effort.
 
   - introduction and more use of the option parser API.
 
   - enhancement and more use of the strbuf API.
 
 
Fixes since v1.5.3
------------------
 
All of the fixes in v1.5.3 maintenance series are included in
this release, unless otherwise noted.
 
 * git-svn talking with the SVN over http will correctly quote branch
   and project names.
 
 * "git rev-list --objects A..B" choked when the lower boundary
   of the range involved a subproject.  This fix is also queued
   for 'maint' (but not in there yet).
