Any word on what the change was? That site doesn't load properly.

From the article: (SPOILER - in case your client doesn't auto-hide them)

Lines changedThe amended line is right at the very end of Remake, after the party battles Sephiroth. We see the paths of Zack and Aerith cross, seemingly from different worlds or timelines, as rain begins to fall.

Aerith looks upwards and states: "I miss it... the steel sky."

The steel sky in question is the plate the city of Midgar is built on, which the slums lie beneath. It's poetic, then, and calls back to an earlier line from Aerith that also references the steel sky. Moreover, it parallels both the party and the player's journey - the adventure will continue in Rebirth, out in the open world and no longer beneath the "steel sky" of Midgar.

Except now that line has been changed to: "This sky...I don't like it."

Ostensibly, the new line has the same purpose and has a similar meaning. Aerith still looks upwards and comments on the sky, after all.

Did they fix the spelling on Aeris's name?

"Aerith" is the correct spelling tho. They fixed the mistake by changing it from Aeris to Aerith.

Aerith looks weird to the people who've been calling her Aeris for almost 3 decades. There's no good reason to have changed it aside from different localization teams having different opinions.

It's like a "Han shot first" situation except worse because it was likely someone else making the change. It was never fixing an error.
