Release Notes

This release should not result in different issue numbers. For TypeScript users, an error in type definitions has been corrected. This release could require a correction to how axe-core types are used. This release may change selectors on elements with the xmlns attribute, as the selectors axe-core prosed with those was invalid. Deduplication based on selectors between this and and prior versions of axe-core can fail because of this change.
