Wesnoth 1.6.3 is out!
This is a bugfix release for the 1.6.x series and it is compatible with the other 1.6.x versions.
1.6.3 fixes several smaller bugs, provides some smaller and many bigger updates to many translations and ships several updated graphics (not everything is listed in the changelog...). This time the most important changes were fixing bugs in the server. Most users won't notice those unless they host a server themselves (eg via the local game option). In general this release is not too exciting, only some smaller stuff was fixed.
Of course there is also the full changelog
listing (almost) all the changes since 1.6.2. A changelog with changes that might be visible to most users (and only includes these) is the players changelog

for the new rules which are to be followed from now on. If you encounter any problems with content from the add-on server not working as expected, please notice the content's author, most of them should be here in the forums.

PS: Within the next seven days anyone asking when the binary for xyz will be ready will be banned and the post will be deleted.
Such questions just distract the developers and packagers and don't do any good, so better not ask them...
Bugreports in the forums tend to get forgotten. You will get better results by following the guidelines
and report them in the bugtracker
