What's new
----------

This release includes a fix for CVE-2023-5764, where internal templating actions could result in unsafe data losing its unsafe designation.

The devel branch is still currently vulnerable to CVE-2023-5764 and will be mitigated with a different fix in the coming weeks. Production users should ensure they are using released stable versions.

The full changelog can be found here:

Schedule for future releases
----------------------------

The next release candidate is planned to be released on 25 December 2023. The next general availability release will be one week after.
