version 0.6.5 is published for BfW 1.10.7, 1.12.6 and 1.14.x

WARNING: games saved with earlier versions of altered era may not work correctly with this version because ids of some abilities were changed to avoid a weird issue in WML coding, also internal format of some .cfg files was changed

changes:
- added icons to show which units of current side are going to be healed at the start of next turn or affected by tactician ability (may be somewhat slow when units with tactician or healing abilities are involved, can be disabled from 'Enable/Disable Notifications' option in right-cick menu)
- mechanism for removing villages adjacent to other villages or castles is moved from "Altered" random map generators to new option of altered era (always enabled for BfW 1.10.7, disabled by default for later versions of BfW) and optimized to work somewhat faster
- tweaked "Altered" random map generators to reduce amount of tundra (frozen forest) terrain, especially on smaller maps
- added club attacks to saurs with spears and shields
- changed slam attack of saur wyverns and related units to fangs attack (same except with pierce damage instead of impact)
- renamed saur assegai to saur incid
