From the official announcement to the Git mailing list:

The latest maintenance release Git is available at the
usual places:

 git-{gz,bz2}			(source tarball)
 git-htmldocs-{gz,bz2}		(preformatted docs)
 git-manpages-{gz,bz2}		(preformatted docs)

The RPM binary packages for a few architectures are found in:

 RPMS/$arch/git-*-$arch.rpm	(RPM)

We will soon be preparing for 1.7.3 feature release but during the
pre-release freeze period for it, I expect one more maintenance updates
to the 1.7.2.X series.

Thanks everybody who contributed to this release to help making git less
suck ;-)

Git v1.7.2.3 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.2.2

* When people try insane things such as delta-compressing 4GiB files, we
  threw an assertion failure.

* "git archive" gave the full commit ID for "$Format:%h$".

* "git fetch --tags" did not fetch tags when remote.<nick>.tagopt was set
  to --no-tags.  The command line option now overrides the configuration

* "git for-each-ref --format='%(objectname:short)'" has been completely
  broken for a long time.

* "git gc" incorrectly pruned a rerere record that was created long
  time ago but still is actively and repeatedly used.

* "git log --follow -M -p" was seriously broken in 1.7.2, reporting
  assertion failure.

* Running "git log" with an incorrect option started pager nevertheless,
  forcing the user to dismiss it.

* "git rebase" did not work well when the user has diff.renames
  configuration variable set.

* An earlier (and rather old) fix to "git rebase" against a rebased
  upstream broke a more normal, non rebased upstream case rather badly,
  attempting to re-apply patches that are already accepted upstream.

* "git submodule sync" forgot to update the superproject's config file
  when submodule URL changed.

* "git pack-refs --all --prune" did not remove a directory that has
  become empty.
