+GIT v1.5.2.2 Release Notes
+==========================
+
+Fixes since v1.5.2.1
+--------------------
+
+* Usability fix
+
+ - git-gui is shipped with its updated blame interface. It is
+ rumored that the older one was not just unusable but was
+ active health hazard, but this one is actually pretty.
+ Please see for yourself.
+
+* Bugfixes
+
+ - "git checkout fubar" was utterly confused when there is a
+ branch fubar and a tag fubar at the same time. It correctly
+ checks out the branch fubar now.
+
+ - "git clone /path/foo" to clone a local /path/foo.git
+ repository left an incorrect configuration.
+
+ - "git send-email" correctly unquotes RFC 2047 quoted names in
+ the patch-email before using their values.
+
+ - We did not accept number of seconds since epoch older than
+ year 2000 as a valid timestamp. We now interpret positive
+ integers more than 8 digits as such, which allows us to
+ express timestamps more recent than March 1973.
+
+ - git-cvsimport did not work when you have GIT_DIR to point
+ your repository at a nonstandard location.
+
+ - Some systems (notably, Solaris) lack hstrerror() to make
+ h_errno human readable; prepare a replacement
+ implementation.
+
+ - .gitignore file listed git-core.spec but what we generate is
+ git.spec, and nobody noticed for a long time.
+
+ - "git-merge-recursive" does not try to run file level merge
+ on binary files.
+
+ - "git-branch --track" did not create tracking configuration
+ correctly when the branch name had slash in it.
+
+ - The email address of the user specified with user.email
+ configuration was overriden by EMAIL environment variable.
+
+ - The tree parser did not warn about tree entries with
+ nonsense file modes, and assumed they must be blobs.
+
+ - "git log -z" without any other request to generate diff still
+ invoked the diff machinery, wasting cycles.
+
+* Documentation
+
+ - Many updates to fix stale or missing documentation.
+
+ - Although our documentation was primarily meant to be formatted
+ with AsciiDoc7, formatting with AsciiDoc8 is supported better.
