[Excuse the repeat - here it is in plaintext] 

Hello Riakators! 

Welcome back to The Recap. We're trying out another new format this week. 
## Feedback 
The first change you'll notice is that we're going with plaintext this time. Do you like it? Do you prefer Markdown? 
* Give a definitive answer in this 3 question survey: https://surveyplanet.com/5501f6ac52dada35360b26a5

## Important announcements 
We've had two advisories worth noting: 
* Advisory in response to POODLE security concern

Both are available here: http://docs.basho.com/riak/latest/community/product-advisories/
