Just to clarify: This change was committed to trunk only, so first release which it will be part of, is 2.3.0. Further bugfix releases from S2_2 branch (2.2.x releases) will not have it. Also, this is not server / client compatibility thing, but server / savegame compatibility thing. 2.2.x server / client will be incompatible with 2.3.x server / client anyway. - ML _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
