Shoes 3.3.7 is Released

Finally. Yes it has been a long time. This was not a bunch of bug fixes although there are some of those. The previous post discussed what’s in 3.3.7 but I’ll include the Changelog here just in case you don’t want to read that post. We did add some thing since that post, mostly for shoes maintainers, hint -> see the Vagrant notes.
