     We strongly recommend users, distributors, and system integrators to
     upgrade unless they use current git master.
+  <p><b>NOTE:</b> Users of FFmpeg 3.1 should avoid running the CLI tools ffmpeg and ffprobe from the 3.0 release with libraries from this release due to a bug
+     making them binary incompatible.
+     It is for that matter strongly recommended to always update both libraries and tools at the same time.
