FreeCol - Open source colonization 0.11.3 release

Another open source game 'FreeCol'; which is based on the very popular title Colonization, has also been updated this month to version 0.11.3. Although it is not a big release unlike FreeCiv v2.5.0, this version does fix a few bugs and clean up yet more annoying problems in version 0.11.0/1/2. FreeCol is based on the highly recommended Sid Meier's Colonization (Microprose) in which the player manages the cross-Atlantic expansion of an established nation in the service of the Crown. Starting off with just a few colonists and looking for new lands, will you succeed for a new nation or be wiped out by the natives.


Since 0.11.2-release, fifteen bugs have been fixed, there was one duplicate and three invalid reports. One bug report has been reassigned as an improvement request. Progress on five reports is blocked needing further information. Five new bugs remain open, consisting of the corruption bug mentioned above, four UI issues.
