This update to the LTS 3.x branch brings most of the fixes already
applied earlier to the v4.x branch, and so the release information is
largely the same:
* there is no urgency to update if you were not affected by these issues
* the "~/.xpra" path has been re-added to the list of socket directories
* the PDFium printing library has been updated in the MS Windows builds

Next, the 3.0.x LTS branch will be replaced by the 3.1.x LTS branch.
