What's new in the 2nd edition of "Version Control with Git"?

The 2nd edition is 37% bigger (454 pages vs. 330) and has 5 more chapters. The 2nd edition describes version 1.7.9 of Git (just slightly behind the current version, 1.7.12, released this week) vs the relatively ancient version 1.6.0 in the 1st edition. Clearly there is a lot of new material. Why doesn't O'Reilly's website have a list or even a short summary of what is new in the 2nd edition?
