So far there is only one bug which stands out, and it is indeed the 
profile conversion (or registrymodifications.xcu).

It is quite important because an incorrect 3.3 profile migration, which 
is something we cannot test since it depends mainly on user 
customizations, will leave the user with frequent application crashes or 
broken writing aids. And the user will blame OpenOffice without being 
aware that a trivial fix exists.

I tried drafting a paragraph about this in the Release Notes:

Feel free to discuss whether it should be there or not, but if users do 
read something when downloading, probably that one is the one page they 
will read.
