Canonical list is the commits, of course:

But in human readable form the substantive changes are

   - Use "spec types" rather than WebIDL types when discussing
   strings/lists of strings away from the bindings code
   - Clarify names/sorted list of names c/o i18n feedback
   - Fix precedence for exception cases when calling transaction() to match
   implementations - this is the only intentional normative change
   - Integrate with [HTML]'s StructuredSerialize/StructuredDeserialize
