Name        : wesnoth
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.2.7
Release     : 1.fc7
URL         : http://www.wesnoth.org
Summary     : Turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme
Description :
The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme.

Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened
veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly
host against whom none can stand. Choose units from a large pool of
specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well
on different terrains against all manner of opposition.

Fight to regain the throne of Wesnoth, of which you are the legitimate
heir, or use your dread power over the Undead to dominate the land of
mortals, or lead your glorious Orcish tribe to victory against the humans
who dared despoil your lands. Wesnoth has many different sagas waiting to
be played out. You can create your own custom units, and write your own
scenarios--or even full-blown campaigns. You can also challenge your
friends--or strangers--and fight multi-player epic fantasy battles.

Update Information:

Security fix release: A malicious user could send a long chat message with multibyte characters, the server would truncate the message on a fixed length, without paying attention to the multibyte characters. This led to invalid utf-8 on the client and an uncaught exception was thrown.
