For statistics' sake, the commit introducing that text was from November 
2014¹, and it happened on the
original 2.6 CVS on Sourceforge (which no longer provides CVS, and 2.6 
hasn't migrated to SVN or Git
on Sourceforge; the inactivity is generally assumed to mean AviSynth+ 
should be treated as 'upstream').

AviSynth+ merged in those changes sometime later, and are still present 
in the current/de facto development
HEAD².  The version we ship in compat is slightly older than what 
AviSynth+ currently provides, due
to some issues with MSVC/GCC client program compatibility in the 
avs/capi.h header when [the
chronically fragile support for] GCC compilation of the main AviSynth+ 
project was added in 2016.

¹a mirror of the CVS version of the file from 2015: 

tl;dr: the header shipped in compat isn't really out of date with 
upstream in its essential functions,
so if the typo just gets fixed here it's probably not a big deal.
