.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.sp
Shows commit logs and diff output each commit introduces\&.
.sp
New users are encouraged to use \fBgit-log\fR(1) instead\&. The \fBwhatchanged\fR command is essentially the same as \fBgit-log\fR(1) but defaults to show the raw format diff output and to skip merges\&.
.sp
The command is kept primarily for historical reasons; fingers of many people who learned Git long before \fBgit log\fR was invented by reading Linux kernel mailing list are trained to type it\&.
