 this is a "patch version". This means that there have been no API changes. Any
 changes which were made were done in a backwards-compatible manner. Code that

+<h2 id="sslv3-disabled-poodle">SSLv3 disabled (POODLE)</h2>
+<p>Many Accumulo services were capable of enabling wire encryption using
+SSL connectors. 1.5.3 disables the problematic SSLv3 version which was
+susceptible to the man-in-the-middle attack.</p>
 <h1 id="notable-bug-fixes">Notable Bug Fixes</h1>
+<h2 id="sourceswitchingiterator-deadlock">SourceSwitchingIterator Deadlock</h2>
+<p>An instance of SourceSwitchingIterator, the Accumulo iterator which transparently
+whether data for a tablet read from memory (the in-memory map) or disk (HDFS after a minor
+compaction), was found deadlocked in a production system.</p>
+<p>This deadlock prevented the scan and the minor compaction from ever successfully
+without restarting the tablet server. ACCUMULO-3745 fixes the inconsistent synchronization
+inside of the SourceSwitchingIterator to prevent this deadlock from happening in the future.</p>
+<p>The only mitigation of this bug was to restart the tablet server that is deadlocked.</p>
+<h2 id="table-flush-blocked-indefinitely">Table flush blocked indefinitely</h2>
+<p>While running the Accumulo RandomWalk distributed test, it was observed that all
activity in
+Accumulo had stopped and there was an offline Accumulo metadata table tablet. The system
+tried to flush a user tablet, but the metadata table was not online (likely due to the agitation
+process which stops and starts Accumulo processes during the test). After this call, a call
+load the metadata tablet was queued but could not complete until the previous flush call.
+a deadlock occurred.</p>
+<p>This deadlock happened because the synchronous flush call could not complete before
the load
+tablet call completed, but the load tablet call couldn't run because of connection caching
+perform in Accumulo's RPC layer to reduce the quantity of sockets we need to create to send
+ACCUMULO-3597 prevents this deadlock by forcing the use of a non-cached connection for the
+message requesting a metadata tablet to be loaded.</p>
+<p>While this feature does result in additional network resources to be used, the concern
is minimal
+because the number of metadata tablets is typically very small with respect to the total
number of
+tablets in the system.</p>
+<p>The only mitigation of this bug was to restart the tablet server that is hung.</p>
+<h2 id="rpc-connections-not-cached">RPC Connections not cached</h2>
+<p>It was observed that the underlying connection for invoking RPCs were not actually
being cached,
+despite it being requested that they should be cached. While this did not result in a noticed
+performance impact, it was deficiency. <a href="">ACCUMULO-3574</a>
ensures that connections are cached when
+it is requested that they are.</p>
+<h2 id="deletes-on-thrift-proxy-api-ignored">Deletes on Thrift Proxy API ignored</h2>
+<p>A user noted that when trying to specify a delete using the Accumulo Thrift Proxy,
the delete
+was treated as an update. <a href="">ACCUMULO-3474</a>
fixes the Proxy server such that deletes are properly
+respected as specified by the client.</p>
