Git v1.7.5 Release Notes (draft)
========================
 
Updates since v1.7.4
--------------------
 
 * Various MinGW portability fixes.
 
 * Various git-p4 enhancements (in contrib).
 
 * "git config" used to be also known as "git repo-config", but the old
   name is now officially deprecated.
 
 * "git checkout --detach <commit>" is a more user friendly synonym for
   "git checkout <commit>^0".
 
 * "git cherry-pick" and "git revert" can be told to use custom merge
   strategy, similar to "git rebase".
 
 * "rev-list --objects $revs -- $pathspec" would limit the objects listed
   in its output properly with the pathspec, in preparation for narrow
   clones.
 
 * "git log" family of commands now understand globbing pathspecs.  You
   can say "git log -- '*.txt'" for example.
 
 * "git rerere" learned a new subcommand "remaining", that is similar to
   "status" that lists the paths that had conflicts that are known to
   rerere, but excludes the paths that have already been marked as
   resolved in the index from its output.  "git mergetool" has been
   updated to use this facility.
 
 * A possible value to the "push.default" configuration variable,
   'tracking', gained a synonym that more naturally describes what it
   does, 'upstream'.
 
Also contains various documentation updates.
 
 
Fixes since v1.7.4
------------------
 
All of the fixes in the v1.7.4.X maintenance series are included in this
release, unless otherwise noted.
 
 * "git merge" triggers prepare-commit-msg hook.  Earlier, only "git
   commit" to conclude an interrupted merge triggered the hook, leading to
   an inconsistent overall user experience (js/maint-merge-use-prepare-commit-msg-hook).
