Very close :)  The 3.3.3 version is actually a release candidate.  In 
other words if no problems get reported it'll get a full release, if 
there are problems there may be a second release candidate depending on 
the severity.  That's all down to the release manager.  As your student 
appears to be up the creek without a paddle and has a hole in the bottom 
of the canoe, I suggest you get them going with this release.

Slight aside, would you please quote context when you reply, TIA.
