This update contains an large number of fixes but none of them are critical.
Most of the fixes are in the HTML5 client, SSL socket support and
various other subsystems: clipboard, audio, shadow servers, etc.

The only noteworthy change is for the packaging of the media codecs:
those are now loading the correct version of the library when multiple
versions are installed - this should prevent some warnings and maybe
even fix some performance and stability issues as well.

There is no urgency to update if your were not affected by those issues.
