You can add the shorthash part behind the 'g' to the github URL as

It will show you in which branches and tags it is included above:
  master  n3.1-dev n3.0 
You can click on n3.0, then there's a link to the tree on the left
side, leading you to
where you find the Changelog

Note: not all of those changes in the changelog are in your commit, but
vice versa: Your commit is part of the changes in the release that came
later. This is not what you want. :-)

If you want to see what your particular commit corresponds to, you can
go directly from the commit to its tree ("Browse files", top right) and
navigate to its Changelog:

Actually, you can just insert your shorthash into that URL, that works
as well:
