In parallel to our work on Godot 3.5 (with a first beta) and 4.0 (now at alpha 2!), we backport important fixes to the stable 3.4 branch for use in production.

A number of such fixes have been queued since the 3.4.2 release, so we’re getting ready to release Godot 3.4.3, and this second Release Candidate is your chance to help us validate it.
