The error checking has not improved much since way back. There have been some changes around the edges: more conservative FFT lengths, round-off checking every iteration if near an FFT limit, tolerating roundoff errors up to 0.6, etc.

Also, I think the error rate is likely to remain fairly constant because computers are getting faster at roughly the same rate as the difficulty of running an LL test. That is, a 10 million first time test 3 years ago probably took as much elapsed time as a 20 million first time test today.
