 Git v1.7.10.1 Release Notes
+Additions since v1.7.10
+Localization message files for Danish and German have been added.
 Fixes since v1.7.10
  * "git add -p" is not designed to deal with unmerged paths but did
    not exclude them and tried to apply funny patches only to fail.
+ * "git blame" started missing quite a few changes from the origin
+   since we stopped using the diff minimalization by default in v1.7.2
+   era.
  * When PATH contains an unreadable directory, alias expansion code
    did not kick in, and failed with an error that said "git-subcmd"
    was not found.

+ * The parser in "fast-import" did not diagnose ":9" style references

+ * When "git fetch" encounters repositories with too many references,

+   if it needs to go into submodules when non branches (most notably,
+   tags) are fetched.
+ * "log -p --graph" used with "--stat" had a few formatting error.
  * Running "notes merge --commit" failed to perform correctly when run
    from any directory inside $GIT_DIR/.  When "notes merge" stops with
    conflicts, $GIT_DIR/NOTES_MERGE_WORKTREE is the place a user edits
