Why did Ben change "srcCompat" to just "src"?

When changing the "app" prefix to the "tools" prefix in the last line of the ImageView in the XML code of the layout, he also changed "srcCompat" to just "src".

I would like to know:

  • Is there a reason why he did this?
  • What are the differences between src and srcCompat?

Thanks in advance, I would appreciate a lot your help :D
