+GIT v126.96.36.199 Release Notes
+* --date=relative output between 1 and 5 years ago rounded the number of
+ years when saying X years Y months ago, instead of rounding it down.
+* "git add -p" did not handle changes in executable bits correctly
+ (a regression around 1.6.3).
+* "git apply" did not honor GNU diff's convention to mark the creation/deletion
+ event with UNIX epoch timestamp on missing side.
+* "git checkout" incorrectly removed files in a directory pointed by a
+ symbolic link during a branch switch that replaces a directory with
+* "git clean -d -f" happily descended into a subdirectory that is managed by a
+ separate git repository. It now requires two -f options for safety.
+* "git fetch/push" over http transports had two rather grave bugs.
+* "git format-patch --cover-letter" did not prepare the cover letter file
+ for use with non-ASCII strings when there are the series contributors with
+* "git pull origin branch" and "git fetch origin && git merge origin/branch"
+ left different merge messages in the resulting commit.
+Other minor documentation updates are included.
