+ * "git svn" wasted way too much disk to record revision mappings
+ between svn and git; a new representation that is much more compact
+ for this information has been introduced to correct this.
* "git status" from a subdirectory now shows relative paths, which
makes copy-and-pasting for git-checkout/git-add/git-rm easier. The
traditional behaviour to show the full path relative to the top of
the work tree can be had by setting status.relativepaths
configuration variable to true.
+ * "git blame" kept text for each annotated revision in core needlessly;
+ this has been corrected.
+ * "git shortlog" learned to default to HEAD when the standard input is
+ a terminal and the user did not give any revision parameter.
+ * "git shortlog" learned "-e" option to show e-mail addresses as well as
+ * "git help" learned "-w" option to show documentation in browsers.
* In addition there are quite a few internal clean-ups. Notably
- many fork/exec have been replaced with run-command API,
echo O=`git describe refs/heads/master`
git shortlog --no-merges $O..refs/heads/master ^refs/heads/maint
