As far as I remember, verbose log in Magit 1.x was on lL. However, in Magit 2 lL does something different altogether. I know it is possible to activate verbosity by toggling --stat or --patch options. However, that's not quite what I need.

Is it possible to generate verbose log, but without any diff details?

  • What do you want to display?

  • Author, date and full comment, all on separate lines. Basically, exactly like entry headers with --stat option (i.e. without changed file details).

I have just added a new argument to the log popup which allows showing additional information about each commit without also showing the diff or diffstat.

The argument is named ++header and it behaves mostly like git-log's --format argument. When that switch is enabled, then the format specified by the new option magit-log-revision-headers-format gets combined with a constant format used internally. The result is then used as --formats value. That's why I am using another argument, which git does not actually understand and indicate that by naming it ++header instead of --header.
