Update Information:

An update of git-cola to the latest upstream release, version 1.8.3:

Usability, bells and whistles:
* We now automatically remove missing repositories from the “Select Repository” dialog. (http://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/145)
* A new git cola diff sub-command was added for diffing changed files.
* The diff viewer now has an “Options” menu which can be used to set “git diff” options. This can be used to ignore whitespace changes or to show a change with its surrounding function as context. (http://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/150)
* git cola now remembers your commit message and will restore it when git cola is restarted. (https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/pull/175)
* Ctrl+M can now be used to toggle the “Amend last commit” checkbox in the commit message editor. (https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/pull/161)
* Deleting remote branches can now be done from the “Branch” menu. (https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/152)
* The commit message editor now has a built-in spell checker.

* The inotify auto-refresh feature makes it difficult to select text in the “diff” editor when files are being continually modified by another process. The auto-refresh causes it to lose the currently selected text, which is not wanted. We now avoid this problem by saving and restoring the selection when refreshing the editor. (http://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/155)
* More strings have been marked for l10n. (http://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/157)
* Fixed the Alt+D Diffstat shortcut. (http://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/159)
* Better error handling when cloning repositories. We were not handling the case where a git URL has no basename, e.g. https://git.example.com/. git cola originally rejected these URLs instead of allowing users to clone them. It now allows these URLs when they point to valid git repositories. Additionally, git cola learned to echo the errors reported by git clone when it fails. (http://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/156)
* We now avoid invoking external diffs when showing diffstats. (https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/pull/163)
* The Status tool learned to reselect files when refreshing. (https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/165)
* git cola now remembers whether it has been maximized and will restore the maximized state when git cola is restarted. (https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/172)
* Performance is now vastly improved when staging hundreds or thousands of files.
* git cola was not correctly saving repo-specific configuration. (https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola/issues/174)
* Fix a UnicodeDecode in sphinxtogithub when building from source.
