Who Should Upgrade?
Upgrade is strongly recommended for nodes running the 3.3.x releases, which are known to crash comparatively often. This release should improve the situation significantly.
Versions before 3.3.0 are suffering from a data leak that has also been fixed with 3.3.2. We recommend that these nodes should be upgraded too. Please check the release nodes of all intermediate releases when upgrading.
None when upgrading from 3.3.1.
Please check the 3.3.0 Release Notes for more information if you are upgrading from versions prior to 3.3.0.

Emergency Bugfix Release
This release fixes a chain halt. All nodes must upgrade.
Note: to avoid replay, nodes on older 3.x.y versions might prefer to upgrade to the respective patch versions. We have tagged these with 3.0.2, 3.1.1 and 3.2.2 respectively.
The only change in this release is #1975.
Upgrade instructions from previous versions apply. Docker builds are underway but may take some time to complete.
