Git, a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency, is now at version 1.8.0.3.

As releases go, Git 1.8.0.3 is quite a large one, with tons of changes and updates.

Highlights of Git 1.8.0.3:

• "git log -p -S<string>" did not apply the textconv filter while looking for the <string>. This problem has been fixed;
• In the documentation, some invalid example e-mail addresses were formatted into mailto: links;
• A convention of prefixing commit messages has been added;
• Support for old compilers to CodingGuidelines has been moved;
• Missing info about --git-dir command-line option has been added;
• Git is released under the GPLv2, not just "the GPL".
