Git 2.19 released – some highlights

The open source Git project just released Git 2.19, with features and bug-fixes
from over 60 contributors.

You might have used git rebase, which is a powerful tool for rewriting history
by altering commits, commit order, or branch bases to name a few. Many people
do this to “polish” a series of commits before proposing to merge them into a
project. But how can we visualize the differences between two sets of commits,
before and after a rebase?

We can use git diff to show the difference between the two end states, but
that doesn’t provide information about the individual commits. And if the base
on which the commits were built has changed, the resulting state might be
quite different, even if the changes in the commits are largely the same.
