I hope Dimitra Fimi will published the revisions and the name on her website like H&S, for those who won't or can't buy this new edition.

I am hopeful as well, but from what I hear the material is primary (Tolkien’s writings) so the Estate has to give permission.

I have ordered the paperback but would be very nice to know the revisions.

Dimitra did say they were 'minor', so I expect the most notable to be any typos like this, for example, "The cut jumped on the counter" should say "The cat jumped on the counter."
