    Lower memory footprint and performance for the git name-rev functionality.
    Wait so this means it has lower performance too?

        No, it means it lowers the memory's performance, along with footprint

          I read the list of changes for the new transport protocol. It looks like mostly low-level, design improvements to make the design cleaner and more optimized. The one actual intended feature that stood out was:

          Designed with http and stateless-rpc in mind. With clear flush semantics the http remote helper can simply act as a proxy
          So it sounds like they've made the software easier to build into web services. Good move as a lot of devs use git via a web front end and there are a growing number of development tools that programmatically peak into and interact with a git-controlled project to offer up their own service.
