NSS 3.85 shared libraries are backwards-compatible with all older NSS
3.x shared libraries. A program linked with older NSS 3.x shared
libraries will work with this new version of the 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 at

Release notes will be available at
though you should expect a small delay.
