+Git v1.7.11.7 Release Notes
+===========================
+
+Fixes since v1.7.11.6
+---------------------
+
+ * The synopsis said "checkout [-B branch]" to make it clear the
+ branch name is a parameter to the option, but the heading for the
+ option description was "-B::", not "-B branch::", making the
+ documentation misleading.
+
+ * Git ships with a fall-back regexp implementation for platforms with
+ buggy regexp library, but it was easy for people to keep using their
+ platform regexp. A new test has been added to check this.
+
+ * "git apply -p0" did not parse pathnames on "diff --git" line
+ correctly. This caused patches that had pathnames in no other
+ places to be mistakenly rejected (most notably, binary patch that
+ does not rename nor change mode). Textual patches, renames or mode
+ changes have preimage and postimage pathnames in different places
+ in a form that can be parsed unambiguously and did not suffer from
+ this problem.
+
+ * After "gitk" showed the contents of a tag, neither "Reread
+ references" nor "Reload" did not update what is shown as the
+ contents of it, when the user overwrote the tag with "git tag -f".
+
+ * "git for-each-ref" did not currectly support more than one --sort
+ option.
+
+ * "git log .." errored out saying it is both rev range and a path
+ when there is no disambiguating "--" is on the command line.
+ Update the command line parser to interpret ".." as a path in such
+ a case.
+
+ * Pushing to smart HTTP server with recent Git fails without having
+ the username in the URL to force authentication, if the server is
+ configured to allow GET anonymously, while requiring authentication
+ for POST.
+
+ * "git show --format='%ci'" did not give timestamp correctly for
+ commits created without human readable name on "committer" line.
+ (merge e27ddb6 jc/maint-ident-missing-human-name later to maint).
+
+ * "git show --quiet" ought to be a synonym for "git show -s", but
+ wasn't.
