  * Command-line completion scripts for tcsh and zsh have been added.
 
+ * A new remote-helper interface for Mercurial has been added to
+   contrib/remote-helpers.
+
  * We used to have a workaround for a bug in ancient "less" that
    causes it to exit without any output when the terminal is resized.
    The bug has been fixed in "less" version 406 (June 2007), and the
    from the submodule working tree, "git rm" learned to detect this
    case and removes the submodule working tree when it is safe.
 
+ * "git send-email" used to prompt for the sender address, even when
+   the committer identify is well specified (e.g. via user.name and
+   user.email configuration variables).  The command no longer gives
+   this prompt when not necessary.
+
+ * "git send-email" did not allow non-address garbage strings to
+   appear after addresses on Cc: lines in the patch files (and when
+   told to pick them up to find more recipients), e.g.
+
+     Cc: Stable Kernel <stable@k.org> # for v3.2 and up
+
+   The command now strips " # for v3.2 and up" part before adding the
+   remainder of this line to the list of recipients.
+
  * "git submodule add" learned to add a new submodule at the same
    path as the path where an unrelated submodule was bound to in an
    existing revision via the "--name" option.
  * We failed to mention a file without any content change but whose
    permission bit was modified, or (worse yet) a new file without any
    content in the "git diff --stat" output.
-   (merge 74faaa1 lt/diff-stat-show-0-lines later to maint).
+   (merge de9095955 lt/diff-stat-show-0-lines later to maint).
+
+ * When "--stat-count" hides a diffstat for binary contents, the total
+   number of added and removed lines at the bottom was computed
+   incorrectly.
+   (merge de9095955 lt/diff-stat-show-0-lines later to maint).
+
+ * When "--stat-count" hides a diffstat for unmerged paths, the total
+   number of affected files at the bottom of the "diff --stat" output
+   was computed incorrectly.
+   (merge de9095955 lt/diff-stat-show-0-lines later to maint).
+
+ * "diff --shortstat" miscounted the total number of affected files
+   when there were unmerged paths.
+   (merge de9095955 lt/diff-stat-show-0-lines later to maint).
 
  * "update-ref -d --deref SYM" to delete a ref through a symbolic ref
    that points to it did not remove it correctly.
