I'm not sure what would be good to add--while the internal work was pretty
extensive, the only user-visible changes are that the typo suggestions
given are a bit smarter mainly in large or complex translation units
(mostly in more corner-like cases such as getting the right combination of
corrections when a single expression has multiple typos, or where multiple
equally-likely corrections can be disambiguated based on additional
information about the expression in which the typo occurs, or choosing a
textually less-close correction based on e.g. the arguments or return value
if it is a function call). Which is to say, it now tries a bit harder to
give a usable suggestion in more cases, with fewer situations where it
could have suggested something but didn't, or where the suggestion caused
more compilation errors. Oh, and there are now more cases where it can
successfully recover when the suggestion is a keyword that changes how the
expression is parsed.
