+* Documentation updates
+
+ - Clarifications and corrections to 1.5.0 release notes.
+
+ - The main documentation did not link to git-remote documentation.
+
+ - Clarified introductory text of git-rebase documentation.
+
+ - Converted remaining mentions of update-index on Porcelain
+ documents to git-add/git-rm.
+
+ - Some i18n.* configuration variables were incorrectly
+ described as core.*; fixed.
+
+ - added and clarified core.bare, core.legacyheaders configurations.
+
+ - updated "git-clone --depth" documentation.
+
+ - user-manual updates.
+
+ - Options to 'git remote add' were described insufficiently.
+
+ - Configuration format.suffix was not documented.
+
+ - Other formatting and spelling fixes.
+
+ - user-manual has better cross references.
+
+ - gitweb installation/deployment procedure is now documented.
+
+
+* Bugfixes
+
+ - git-upload-pack closes unused pipe ends; earlier this caused
+ many zombies to hang around.
+
+ - git-rerere was recording the contents of earlier hunks
+ duplicated in later hunks. This prevented resolving the same
+ conflict when performing the same merge the other way around.
+
+ - git-add and git-update-index on a filesystem on which
+ executable bits are unreliable incorrectly reused st_mode
+ bits even when the path changed between symlink and regular
+ file.
+
+ - git-daemon marks the listening sockets with FD_CLOEXEC so
+ that it won't be leaked into the children.
+
+ - segfault from git-blame when the mandatory pathname
+ parameter was missing was fixed; usage() message is given
+ instead.
+
+ - git-rev-list did not read $GIT_DIR/config file, which means
+ that did not honor i18n.logoutputencoding correctly.
+
+ - Automated merge conflict handling when changes to symbolic
+ links conflicted were completely broken. The merge-resolve
+ strategy created a regular file with conflict markers in it
+ in place of the symbolic link. The default strategy,
+ merge-recursive was even more broken. It removed the path
+ that was pointed at by the symbolic link. Both of these
+ problems have been fixed.
+
+ - 'git diff maint master next' did not correctly give combined
+ diff across three trees.
+
+ - 'git fast-import' portability fix for Solaris.
+
+ - 'git show-ref --verify' without arguments did not error out
+ but segfaulted.
+
+ - 'git diff :tracked-file `pwd`/an-untracked-file' gave an extra
+ slashes after a/ and b/.
+
+ - 'git format-patch' produced too long filenames if the commit
+ message had too long line at the beginning.
+
+ - Running 'make all' and then without changing anything
+ running 'make install' still rebuilt some files. This
+ was inconvenient when building as yourself and then
+ installing as root (especially problematic when the source
+ directory is on NFS and root is mapped to nobody).
+
+ - 'git-rerere' failed to deal with two unconflicted paths that
+ sorted next to each other.
+
+ - 'git-rerere' attempted to open(2) a symlink and failed if
+ there was a conflict. Since a conflicting change to a
+ symlink would not benefit from rerere anyway, the command
+ now ignores conflicting changes to symlinks.
+
+ - 'git-repack' did not like to pass more than 64 arguments
+ internally to underlying 'rev-list' logic, which made it
+ impossible to repack after accumulating many (small) packs
+ in the repository.
+
+ - 'git-diff' to review the combined diff during a conflicted
+ merge were not reading the working tree version correctly
+ when changes to a symbolic link conflicted. It should have
+ read the data using readlink(2) but read from the regular
+ file the symbolic link pointed at.
+
+ - 'git-remote' did not like period in a remote's name.
+
+ - 'git.el' honors the commit coding system from the configuration.
+
+ - 'blameview' in contrib/ correctly digs deeper when a line is
+ clicked.
+
+ - 'http-push' correctly makes sure the remote side has leading
+ path. Earlier it started in the middle of the path, and
+ incorrectly.
+
+ - 'git-merge' did not exit with non-zero status when the
+ working tree was dirty and cannot fast forward. It does
+ now.
+
+ - 'cvsexportcommit' does not lose yet-to-be-used message file.
+
+ - int-vs-size_t typefix when running combined diff on files
+ over 2GB long.
+
+ - 'git apply --whitespace=strip' should not touch unmodified
+ lines.
+
+ - 'git-mailinfo' choke when a logical header line was too long.
+
+ - 'git show A..B' did not error out. Negative ref ("not A" in
+ this example) does not make sense for the purpose of the
+ command, so now it errors out.
+
+ - 'git fmt-merge-msg --file' without file parameter did not
+ correctly error out.
+
+ - 'git archimport' barfed upon encountering a commit without
+ summary.
+
+ - 'git index-pack' did not protect itself from getting a short
+ read out of pread(2).
+
+ - 'git http-push' had a few buffer overruns.
+
+ - Build dependency fixes to rebuild fetch.o when other headers
+ change.
+
+ - git.el does not add duplicate sign-off lines.
+
+ - git-commit shows the full stat of the resulting commit, not
+ just about the files in the current directory, when run from
+ a subdirectory.
+
+ - "git-checkout -m '@{8 hours ago}'" had a funny failure from
+ eval; fixed.
+
+ - git-merge (hence git-pull) did not refuse fast-forwarding
+ when the working tree had local changes that would have
+ conflicted with it.
+
+ - a handful small fixes to gitweb.
+
+ - build procedure for user-manual is fixed not to require locally
+ installed stylesheets.
+
+ - "git commit $paths" on paths whose earlier contents were
+ already updated in the index were failing out.
+
+
+* Tweaks
+
+ - sliding mmap() inefficiently mmaped the same region of a
+ packfile with an access pattern that used objects in the
+ reverse order. This has been made more efficient.
