This minor update fixes a large number of issues, some of which were
fairly recent regressions, others very old ones.
Upgrading is strongly recommended.

The refresh fixes will ensure that in almost all cases, your windows
should get pixel perfect quality, at worst after a brief "auto refresh
delay" following any lossy paint. The downside is a little bit more
bandwidth and CPU consumption.

The OSX and MS Windows builds have been updated to ffmpeg 2.4.4, which
is also available in the RPM repositories.
The Intel OpenGL driver has been blacklisted on MS Windows (it was
already blacklisted on OSX) because it causes client crashes, you can
still re-enable it using the opengl=yes command line switch or config
file option (at your own risk obviously).

Also included are a fair amount of fixes for warnings, corner cases and
error handling code.
The launcher also received a number of important fixes.

Many thanks to those who patiently reported bugs and tested the fixes.
