HAProxy known bugs for maintenance branch 2.3 :  5 

This is maintenance branch 2.3 whose latest version is 2.3.9. If your version is not the last one in the maintenance branch, you are missing fixes for known bugs, and by not updating you are needlessly taking the responsibility for the risk of unexpected service outages and exposing your web site to possible security issues.

The HAProxy development team takes a great care of maintaining stable versions so that all users can apply bug fixes without having to take the risk of upgrading to a new branch. In turn users are expected to apply the fixes when the development team estimates that they were worth being backported to stable branches. In short, if you are running any 2.3 version other than 2.3.9, you're running with known bugs.

Known bugs fixed in the development branch after the last commit in this branch

It is important to understand that not all of these commits are necessarily relevant to this version, but clicking on them will show the bug description. All fixes are made first in the development branch and then backported to the maintenance branches. This ensures no fix is lost when upgrading. If a fix was marked for backporting to this branch and is not there yet, it's likely that it is still missing. Do not hesitate to ask on the haproxy mailing list if you feel like a fix has been skipped.
