GIT v1.6.3.3 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.6.3.2

* "git archive" running on Cygwin can get stuck in an infinite loop.

* "git daemon" did not correctly parse the initial line that carries
virtual host request information.

* "git diff --textconv" leaked memory badly when the textconv filter
errored out.

* The built-in regular expressions to pick function names to put on
hunk header lines for java and objc were very inefficiently written.

* in certain error situations git-fetch (and git-clone) on Windows didn't
detect connection abort and ended up waiting indefinitely.

* import-tars script (in contrib) did not import symbolic links correctly.

* http.c used CURLOPT_SSLKEY even on libcURL version 7.9.2, even though
it was only available starting 7.9.3.

* low-level filelevel merge driver used return value from strdup()
without checking if we ran out of memory.

* "git rebase -i" left stray closing parenthesis in its reflog message.

* "git remote show" did not show all the URLs associated with the named
remote, even though "git remote -v" did. Made them consistent by
making the former show all URLs.

* "whitespace" attribute that is set was meant to detect all errors known
to git, but it told git to ignore trailing carriage-returns.

Includes other documentation fixes.
