Awaiting release notes (84.0.2 also released and awaiting notes).

Looking at a diff, I can see a broken warning being removed on very old clang and the removal of related clang diagnostics in a Codegen.py file,the webgpu fixes re _0 for cbindgen-0.16.0, but also changes to an sctp file.

No changes to the javascript78 part.

#CVE-2020-16044: Use-after-free write when handling a malicious COOKIE-ECHO SCTP chunk

    Ned Williamson


A malicious peer could have modified a COOKIE-ECHO chunk in a SCTP packet in a way that potentially resulted in a use-after-free. We presume that with enough effort it could have been exploited to run arbitrary code.

    Bug 1683964

The release notes are now available - other than the above security fix, there is a fix for video playback on Apple Silicon.

I find it amusing that the source tarball for 78.6.1 is smaller than for 78.6.0 when the short diff between them suggests 51 lines of code were deleted and 103 lines added.
