What's Changed in 3.3.4?

Stability and Performance

  * Explicitly handle dead accessible objects to prevent triggering
    crashes in GNOME Shell

  * Refactor InputEvent handling so that it is more performant and
    less convoluted

  * Get rid of the fake window:activate event as it is no longer
    required and may be triggering window manager warnings

  * Move wayward event management functionality to the Event Manager

  * Fix for the problem of updatePunctuationLevel() causing breakage
    for Emacspeak users

  * Fix for bug 666628 - gdk_keymap_translate_keyboard_state() expects
    Gdk.ModifierType; not int

  * Fix for bug 666594 - app-specific preferences cannot be saved for
    certain configurations

Keyboard and Keybindings

  * Speak state changes in locking keys independent of key echo

* Make it possible to use the NumPad as expected in the Desktop Layout

  * Remove the redundant "alternative" keybinding functionality

New and updated translations (THANKS EVERYONE!!!):
