Changes in this release

Crashes may not generate stack traces

There was a change in v3.3.5 in how GemStone’s pstack utility scripts processed the command line, to avoid specific cases of premature exit. This inadvertently resulted in stack traces that would normally be generated during the handling of process crashes to be missed. Versions 3.3.4 and earlier are not affected.

Since this affects diagnosis of repository crashes, GemTalk considers this to be a serious issue. (#46921)

Updated SSL library version
