So, they are admitting that AF-C was wrong then aren't they. Do you see what I mean? Why not just say general AF improvements?

Because their wording of the announcement downsizes the problem(s). Their acknowledgement of "improved subject tracking performance" sounds like a mere tweak. An acknowledgement of "improved functionality of all AF modes in a range of conditions" may sound too much like a question of second rate manufacturing. Please notice that another technique they use to imply that they are merely tweaking minor issues is by being very specific in each listed improvement; "general AF improvements" would not be specific enough to fit this modus operandi.
