One thing is that Emacs Lisp now supports lexical scoping.
When Chassell wrote the intro, we had only dynamic scoping.

However, there could well be other things that have changed.
For instance, the newer control constructs such as
when, until, dolist, may not be in the intro, and perhaps
should be.

(I have never read the intro -- when it was written, I already
knew Emacs Lisp ;-).
