Git 2.35 Release Notes
======================
 
Updates since Git 2.34
----------------------
 
Backward compatibility warts
 
 * "_" is now treated as any other URL-valid characters in an URL when
   matching the per-URL configuration variable names.
 
 
UI, Workflows & Features
 
 * "git status --porcelain=v2" now show the number of stash entries
   with --show-stash like the normal output does.
 
 * "git stash" learned the "--staged" option to stash away what has
   been added to the index (and nothing else).
 
 
Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
 
 * The use of errno as a means to carry the nature of error in the ref
   API implementation has been reworked and reduced.
 
 * Teach and encourage first-time contributors to this project to
   state the base commit when they submit their topic.
 
 * The command line complation for "git send-email" options have been
   tweaked to make it easier to keep it in sync with the command itself.
 
 
Fixes since v2.34
-----------------
 
 * "git grep" looking in a blob that has non-UTF8 payload was
   completely broken when linked with certain versions of PCREv2
   library in the latest release.
 
 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
 
 * "git pull" with any strategy when the other side is behind us
   should succeed as it is a no-op, but doesn't.
 
 * An earlier change in 2.34.0 caused JGit application (that abused
   GIT_EDITOR mechanism when invoking "git config") to get stuck with
   a SIGTTOU signal; it has been reverted.
 
 * An earlier change that broke .gitignore matching has been reverted.
 
 * Things like "git -c branch.sort=bogus branch new HEAD", i.e. the
   operation modes of the "git branch" command that do not need the
   sort key information, no longer errors out by seeing a bogus sort
   key.
   (merge 98e7ab6d42 jc/fix-ref-sorting-parse later to maint).
 
 * The compatibility implementation for unsetenv(3) were written to
   mimic ancient, non-POSIX, variant seen in an old glibc; it has been
   changed to return an integer to match the more modern era.
   (merge a38989bd5b jc/unsetenv-returns-an-int later to maint).
 
 * The clean/smudge conversion code path has been prepared to better
   work on platforms where ulong is narrower than size_t.
   (merge 596b5e77c9 mc/clean-smudge-with-llp64 later to maint).
