There is a typo (transaction is misspelled) in the following line:
Prior release had no such capability; there was no way to recover from a statement failure in a transation. This

"match exactly" at the end of the following appears to be spurious:

Before this change some queries would not use an index if the data types did not exactly match. This improvement makes index usage more intuitive and consistent. match exactly

In the following paragraph there appear to be two typos. I think
"optimizer make" should be "optimizer makes" and that "lose-source"
should be "closed-source".
 It is difficult to explain all the optimizer improvements that go into a release like this. They involve complex adjustments to the logic used to select indexes, join methods, and join order. They are difficult to explain, but the result is that the optimizer make quicker and better choices in how to execute queries, resulting in improved performance. The close relationship between our developers and users reporting problems allows us to make rapid and complex optimizer improvements that would be very difficult for lose-source companies to emulate.
