-This release is the second 1.6 release candidate, meaning that no further
-compatibility-breaking changes are expected. We invite all content-providers,
-Wesnoth-related external sites, and any other concerned parties to test 
compatibility 
-with this release. We also encourage players to playtest this release 
heavily.
-Now is the time to report all the bugs that are obvious to you but which we 
-may not have noticed.

-There are quite some changes on the GUI front and things should start to
-stabilise now. If you see bugs which should be fixed before 1.6 please report
-them in the bug tracker.
-
-The message dialog got overhauled with some new images.  These are 
placeholders.
-They will be polished prior to releasing 1.6.
-
-Users who want to play on the MP dev-server must upgrate to 1.6RC2.
-
-There was sometimes a bug with 1.6RC1 replay when moving near ambushed unit, 
specially with the AI. Fixed now, but a replay not working with 1.6RC1 will 
still not work with 1.6RC2. Savegames are OK, but if you started a scenario 
with RC1, the replay of this scenario may still have the same bug.
-***
+The previous release candidate contained a bug involving ambushed
+units which sometimes resulted in corrupted replays or in multiplayer
+games going out-of-sync.  As a result, we must require that players
+upgrade to 1.6RC2 in order to play on the 1.5 MP server.  Savegames
+and replays that worked with previous versions will continue to work
+with 1.6RC2, although old corrupt replays will remain corrupt.
