procps-ng version 3.3.3 has been released today.  This release contains
a lot of important bug fixes as well as some feature enhancements.

The NEWS file contained in the archive has most of the changes and of
course the git logs shows everything in its gory detail, but here are
some highlights:
  * New watch -g command: repeat until something changes
  * Many top enhancements
  * top can read old toprc configuration files
  * Lots of man page cleanups and fixups

After release, there were some things that were noticed. They are now
fixed in git but not in 3.3.3:
  * If you change the dates of some files, auto* tools will break due to
     missing script
  * Cannot compile with --enable-watch8bit due to missing variables
  * If you create a tar file with no --enable-skill and then try to
    compile with that flag there are missing files
  * Cannot compile with --disable-whining - still to be fixed

Each of these fixes are minor and the patches can be obtained from the
git repository if needed, except the last one.
