Security fixes have been applied to the 3.3 trees already.  A yum update
should apply them for you.  As for the bug fixes and enhancements, I
have added some of those to the 3.3 x86_64 tree, with the rest of them
to follow shortly.  Thus, eventually, a yum update will essentially move
you to 3.4.

I believe the i386 3.3 tree will be similar, unless I've missed

I will also be posting a separate 3.4 tree for x86_64, complete with
isos.  It is being built and will be tested soon.

Lance and others can chime in with more details, as he's further along
with 3.4 than I am.
