3.3 and 3.3.1 break media upload function. Unable to insert any new images into posts.

Not plugin, nor theme related. Not browser nor browser cache related as reports from users note problem in all browsers. Not server platform specific as fault reported on Windows, Linux and BSD boxes. Not directory permissions related as even making all related directories 777 does not fix the issue. Note related to manual or auto upgrade, as both manners of upgrading have been reported.

(Note, v. 3.3.1 not offered as option in trac.wordpress.org)

“example.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error

Unable to create directory /usr/home/example/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2011/12. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

And if you use 3.2 it does work?

The error you gave is a file permissions error - it means that your server does not have write permissions to the wp-content folder (specifically the wp-content/uploads folder)

See http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions and http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress#File_Permissions for more information about changing your file permissions.
