+ * GIT_PAGER was not honored consistently by some scripted Porcelains, most
+ * updating working tree files after telling git to add them to the
+ index and while it is still working created garbage object files in
+ the repository without diagnosing it as an error.
+ * "git bisect -- pathspec..." did not diagnose an error condition properly when
+ the simplification with given pathspec made the history empty.
+ * "git rev-list --cherry-pick A...B" now has an obvious optimization when the
+ histories haven't diverged (i.e. when one end is an ancestor of the other).
+ * "git diff --quiet -w" did not work as expected.
* "git fast-import" didn't work with a large input, as it lacked support
for producing the pack index in v2 format.
* "git imap-send" didn't use CRLF line endings over the imap protocol
when storing its payload to the draft box, violating RFC 3501.
+ * "git log --format='%w(x,y,z)%b'" and friends that rewrap message
+ has been optimized for utf-8 payload.
* Error messages generated on the receiving end did not come back to "git
+ * "git status" in 1.7.0 lacked the optimization we used to have in 1.6.X series
+ to speed up scanning of large working tree.
+ * "gitweb" did not diagnose parsing errors properly while reading tis configuration
And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
