Yes, except that I would word:

slightly differently. In particular, I would say "Undeclared friend classes given by an unqualified name are no longer injected into the containing namespace."

This part is still not in GCC yet. The work so far makes friend class lookup in the right scope. Undeclared friend classes are still visible,
and hence the text I chose in changes.html.

OK; I did not intend to change the meaning. But, I do not find your wording clear. How about "When declaring a friend class using an unqualified name, if name-lookup does not find the friend class, the friend declaration is considered to be a forward declaration of a member class, rather than a class in the containing namespace."?
