For developer

A good resource of change log writing can be found at http://keepachangelog.com/en/0.3.0/

Try to use either of [Added] [Changed] [Deprecated] [Removed] [Fixed] [Security]. (Probably [Refactored] to be added to the list to represent the internal code improvement without changing external interfaces.)
