+`Compatibility <#compatibility>`__
+----------------------------------
+
+.. container::
+
+   NSS 3.80 shared libraries are backwards-compatible with all older NSS 3.x shared
+   libraries. A program linked with older NSS 3.x shared libraries will work with
+   this new version of the shared libraries without recompiling or
+   relinking. Furthermore, applications that restrict their use of NSS APIs to the
+   functions listed in NSS Public Functions will remain compatible with future
+   versions of the NSS shared libraries.
+
+`Feedback <#feedback>`__
+------------------------
+
+.. container::
+
+   Bugs discovered should be reported by filing a bug report on
+   `bugzilla.mozilla.org <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=NSS>`__ (product NSS).
