* "git push" learned "--signed" push, that allows a push (i.e. request to update the refs on the other side to point at a new history, together with the transmission of necessary objects) to be signed, so that it can be verified and audited, using the GPG signature of the person who pushed, that the tips of branches at a public repository really point the commits the pusher wanted to, without having to "trust" the server.

And once again there is a need for a friendly reminder:

If you release a bit of software and wish the audience to pay more attention than they would to any average maintenance releases:

Put something in the title of the release announcement to explain what makes this one special.

Try to do it in a way that makes sense to someone who rarely ever even uses your software.

Such odd language in those release notes. Git is being "taught" things or the various features are "learning". It's like they really do think of it as an actual git.

It may be a cultural artifact of the maintainer being Japanese.
