Lightroom Classic: 9.1/9.2 big improvement in HDR stacking?

A reason that I formerly used 3rd party HDR stacking was the weakness of Lightroom's image alignment for handheld exposure bracketing. Also, there was the need for too much extra processing compared to HDR Efex Pro, processing to adjust contrast, vibrancy, etc. Lightroom is now completely sufficient for my uses. Those who want "over the top" HDR probably still need another tool but I'm not into "Elvis on Velvet" colors. 
 
The 1st 3 are the bracketed photos (Nikon D300S, 70-300 VR, RAW originals) and the last the stacked one. 
 
Now for integrating focus stacking to eliminate the Photoshop round trip.
