It's mostly new features and many bug fixes, though there are a few
minor security-related changes relating to obsolete algorithms and
protocols. The changelog contains the following note:

- No high level security fixes that requires an update though we always
  recommend updating to the latest (except note 6 use case of ecc/normal math)

It should be noted that since version 3.3.0, there have been versions
3.3.2, 3.4.0, and 3.4.6 now.

It might be worth fixing the coova-chilli package to build before the
branch so that it isn't stuck with a broken package, but if anyone does
that without this patch, applying this patch will re-break it, so it
might pay to do this a priori. If you disagree, I believe the branch is
scheduled for this week, so the wait wouldn't be long.
