+CHANGES FROM 2.5.2 to 2.5.3
+ (from <http://www.freeciv.org/wiki/NEWS-2.5.3>)
+ 2.5.3 is a bugfix release mainly aimed at Linux distribution
+ maintainers and other repackagers. There have only been a few minor
+ user-visible fixes since 2.5.2.
+ * Build fixes:
+ + Re-generating the configure script could fail on recent OS
+ distributions due to a clash with the system supplied
+ glib-gettext.m4. This did not affect most users, who would
+ build with the configure script supplied in the tarball.
+ + configure could spuriously output "-lncurses: not found" and
+ fail to find readline on some systems (seen on OpenBSD).
+ * Qt client fixes:
+ + The menu options and keyboard shortcuts to save games were
+ disabled when there were no active units. GNA#24371
+ + The Qt client could create a directory called literally
+ '$HOME'. GNA#24359
+ + A few strings in the Qt client were displayed unlocalized.
+ * Increase the size of some buffers that were causing truncated
+ strings in some localizations, such as Russian. GNA#24328
+ * Change a couple of flag files to address auto-detected licensing
+ conflicts. GNA#23814 GNAPATCH#6855
+ * Some corrections to the Finnish and Russian translations.
