GIT 2.0.0 Released

Junio C Hamano has just announced the availability of GIT 2.0, a major release of the popular distributed SCM tool used by Linux Kernel project and many other open source projects. I even used it in many of my own projects (both open source and personal projects).

This major release brings some big changes, but it has been introduced since 1.9.x, so the transition period should be easier for everyone who have been using 1.9.x. In overall, the changes are scattered everywhere: UI, workflows, performance, documentations, and code clean-ups.
