NSS 3.54 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 NSS 3.54 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).
