Thanks for updating this! Pinging @sammccall since he is also working on writing some release docs, might be helpful to bring this to your attention.

I don't think it is necessary to mention the version. It could be better to directly start with

Clangd builds an incremental index over files listed in the compilation database.

instead of enables let's say improves ?

361 ↗(On Diff #217834)

drop the global

362 ↗(On Diff #217834)

let's mention it will only use your idle cores to build an index and total amount of cores it will use can be limited to X by passing -j=X to clangd

363 ↗(On Diff #217834)

that's not necessarily true, we also save at home directory, and I don't think it is relevant for installation. maybe rather drop it?

instead of if it's disabled...

Note that, disabling background-index will limit clangd's knowledge about your codebase to
files you are currently editing.
369 ↗(On Diff #217834)

I don't think it is relevant for installation section again. But let's make the you probably don't need this a seperate line and make it bold or red ?

I think it is important to mention this. For most cases, .clangd/index is in in the project root, right?

yes, but still if you are planning to mention this please also mention something like: Index shards for common headers like standard library will be stored in $HOME/.clangd/index

365 ↗(On Diff #217834)

seems to be the same?
