Roll up, roll up, get it while it’s hot, Synapse 0.33.4 is here.

This release brings together a whole host of bug fixes, some enhancements to resource usage management and a bunch of internal changes in readiness for room member state lazy loading and our ongoing port to Python 3 (we are hoping to ship a py3 test candidate rsn!).

As ever, you can get the new update from https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/releases/tag/v0.33.4 or any of the sources mentioned at https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse.
