MediaWiki 1.5.3 released [SECURITY]

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

MediaWiki 1.5.3 is a security and bugfix maintenance release.

Validation of the user language option was broken by a code change in
May 2005, opening the possibility of remote code execution as this
parameter is used in forming a class name dynamically created with
eval().

The validation has been corrected in this version. All prior 1.5 release
and prerelease versions are affected; 1.4 and earlier and not affected.

Additionally several bugs have been fixed; see the changelog in the
release notes for a complete list.
