GIT 1.4.0

From:  Junio C Hamano <>
Subject:  [ANNOUNCE] GIT 1.4.0
Date:  Sat, 10 Jun 2006 14:16:46 -0700

The latest feature release GIT 1.4.0 is available at the
usual places:

	git-1.4.0.tar.{gz,bz2}			(tarball)
	git-htmldocs-1.4.0.tar.{gz,bz2}		(preformatted documentation)
	git-manpages-1.4.0.tar.{gz,bz2}		(preformatted documentation)
	RPMS/$arch/git-*-1.4.0-1.$arch.rpm	(RPM)

This is a significant update since v1.3.0 (and v1.3.3 which is
the same codebase with bugfixes-only).  User visible changes

 - Many commands are now coded in C instead of implemented as
   shell scripts.

 - Checkout is more careful not to clobber untracked files.

 - You can "alias" git commands with leading arguments in your
   configuration file.

 - Documentation set, especially the tutorial, has been reworked.

 - Comes with the latest gitk, gitweb, and contributed software.
