But if one looks at the release notes, there's a list of 12 things in "what's new" - 11 of them probably account for probably a few thousand lines of code, and the "improved performance, stability, standards support and web compatibility" appears in every version to describe every other change.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong, it's just that most people would probably think that fixing up a few lines of XUL was a more significant change than rewriting tens of thousands of lines of gecko code.

I'm not sure if describing the back-end changes in more detail would make things better or worse...
