ELF Improvements
----------------
-* ld.lld now has typo suggestions for flags:
- ``$ ld.lld --call-shared`` now prints
- ``unknown argument '--call-shared', did you mean '--call_shared'``.
-
-* ...
+* Glob pattern, which you can use in linker scripts or version scripts,
+ now supports `\` and `[!...]`. Except character classes
+ (e.g. `[[:digit:]]`), lld's glob pattern should be fully compatible
+ with GNU now. (`r375051

COFF Improvements
-----------------
-* Like the ELF driver, lld-link now has typo suggestions for flags.
-
-* lld-link now correctly reports duplicate symbol errors for obj files
- that were compiled with /Gy.
-
-* lld-link now correctly reports duplicate symbol errors when several res
- input files define resources with the same type, name, and language.
- This can be demoted to a warning using ``/force:multipleres``.
-
-* Having more than two ``/natvis:`` now works correctly; it used to not
- work for larger binaries before.
-
-* Undefined symbols are now printed only in demangled form. Pass
- ``/demangle:no`` to see raw symbol names instead.
-
-* The following flags have been added: ``/functionpadmin``, ``/swaprun:``,
- ``/threads:no``
-
-* Several speed and memory usage improvements.
-
* ...
MinGW Improvements
------------------
-* lld now correctly links crtend.o as the last object file, handling
- terminators for the sections such as .eh_frame properly, fixing
- DWARF exception handling with libgcc and gcc's crtend.o.

WebAssembly Improvements

+* `__data_end` and `__heap_base` are no longer exported by default,

+ explicitly exported with `--export=__data_end` and
