Consider adding a link to such tests/how to verify this. Also list
what you are comparing to. Maybe even a pic with performance/quality
In short, please add some more detail at your discretion.

Did not know feedback also goes on the bug tracker. I don't really
know, maybe "feedback via IRC/ffmpeg-devel/private email" (pick
whatever subset you want)?
Consider refining the Changelog entry from "- extensive native AAC
encoder improvements" to "extensive native AAC encoder improvements
and removal of its experimental flag".
Anyway, great work, thanks!
