  * The message from "git am -3" has been improved when conflict
    resolution ended up making the patch a no-op.
+ * "git blame" applies the textconv filter to the contents it works
+   on, when available.
  * "git checkout --orphan newbranch" is similar to "-b newbranch" but
    prepares to create a root commit that is not connected to any existing
    the result to the commits that are on the ancestry chain between A and
    B (i.e. commits that are not descendants of A are excluded).
+ * "git show -5" is equivalent to "git show --do-walk 5"; this is similar
+   to the update to make "git show" walk the history,
+   introduced in 1.6.4.
  * "git status [-s] --ignored" can be used to list ignored paths.
  * "git status -s -b" shows the current branch in the output.
  * "git diff" could show ambiguous abbreviation of blob object names on
    its "index" line (3e5a188).
+ * "git rebase" did not faithfully reproduce a malformed author ident, that
+   is often seen in a repository converted from foreign SCMs (43c23251).
  * "git reset --hard" started from a wrong directory and a working tree in
    a nonstandard location is in use got confused (560fb6a1).
