[gmx-users] Gromacs 3.3.1. and 3.3.3

I agree with Tsjerk, but his mail might have not answered your question exaclty.
In general one should not switch between major revisions in one project.
But there should be nearly no differences in simulation results between
minor revisions. If there are differences this means that a bug was fixed
and you should be using the newer revision anyhow.
So I would suggest switching to 3.3.3.
