Again, mostly based on Linden sources 3.2.7 this is primarily a bug fix release that adds some refinement and polish. A couple of Catznip specific bugs and healthy dose of Lab ones squished including a couple of long term issues. Where applicable we link to our Catznip JIRA (not all issues reported on our tracker are specific to Catznip, in future we hope to track down and link to any relevant Linden JIRA entries).
