NSS 3.65 shared libraries are backward compatible with all older NSS 3.x shared libraries.
A program linked with older NSS 3.x shared libraries will work with this shared libraries
without recompiling or relinking. Furthermore, applications that restrict their use of NSS APIs
to the functions listed in NSS Public Functions will remain compatible with future versions
of the NSS shared libraries.

Bugs discovered should be reported by filing a bug report with bugzilla.mozilla.org (product NSS).

-- Notes: 
Due to some changes in the Firefox release cycle, NSS 3.67 has yet to be added
to the NSS release schedule (3.66 is not affected). I will announce the date to
this list once defined.
