Interesting that this change is a point release.

Replying to bdubbs@…:

That surprised me too.

I think it's a very sloppy Release Note.

From the Release Note for 54.0:

"Today's release is the first to run Firefox using multiple operating system processes for web page content, making Firefox faster and more stable than ever. Learn more about how multiple processes strike a “just right” balance between performance and memory use on the Mozilla Blog. Dive into the details (including performance benchmarks) on Medium."

It looks as if much of that, including the links to Mozilla Blog and Medium, has just been copied over. I've diffed 54.0.1 against 54.0 : the main part is for blocklist.xml (add-ons that give problems or are malicious: that gets stored in the profile, and by default it gets updated daily when firefox is run), the other changes appear to be for the bugs they listed above.
