wesnoth: updated to 1.14.3

Version 1.14.3
  * Fixed crash in presence of units with negative hitpoints (issue 3042).
  * Efficiency improvements to filter evaluations in the Goto Micro AI and some
    AI helper functions
  * Dead Water:
    * Fix possibility of villagers blocking pickup of sword in S10 The Flaming
      Sword (issue 3207).

    * New Parthyn map in S1 and S6.

    * Reduced starting gold and income in scenarios 10 to 13

    * S2: made enemy starting gold equal to that of the player.

 Language and i18n
  * Updated translations: British English, Chinese (Traditional), Czech, French,
    Italian, Japanese, Scottish Gaelic, Spanish
 Multiplayer server
  * Fixed lan_server option not causing the server to exit once vacated, e.g.
    when using the Host Networked Game option from the Multiplayer menu in the
    game (issue 3206).
 Music and sound effects
  * The music now changes immediately when you load a save file (issue 2602).
  * Fixed Lua errors when setting a music track that cannot be found when the
    playlist is already empty, e.g. if there's no music installed for the
    game (issue 3194).
 WML engine
  * Removed validation to ensure units cannot have negative hitpoints. We
    learned that the ability to create such units is documented, and thus
    disallowing it was an API change. Since API changes aren't allowed in
    the stable branch, we have reverted it.
 Miscellaneous and bug fixes
  * Fixed an occasional crash at the loading screen related to multi-thread
    access of the image cache.
  * [kill] animate=yes no longer scrolls to units through fog or shroud, thus
    matching 1.12's behavior again.

    custom caption= is specified (issue 3211).
  * do_not_list=yes units are no longer excluded from the debug mode-only
    Create Unit dialog.
  * Fixed a rare issue where disabled attacks could cause the wrong attack to
    be initially selected in the Unit Attack dialog. This bug also had the
    potential to cause units to the wrong attack when  engaging or viewing
    damage calculations.
  * Fixed [scenario] map_file= being unusable in most circumstances.

Version 1.14.2
  * Northern Rebirth:
    * S02.1 Infested Caves: keep side 8 AI leader from wandering off too far
      and ending up on a keep with only one hex for recruiting.
    * S02.1 Infested Caves: AIs are less likely to kill each other in early
      game, which would make it harder for the player otherwise.
    * S02.1 Infested Caves: Dwarvish allies are also less likely to die.
    * S02.1 Infested Caves: minor map tweaks and improvements.
    * S05 The Pursuit: removed a bottleneck and tweaked Rod of Justice.

    Galician, German, Italian, Japanese, Scottish Gaelic, Spanish, Ukrainian

    it could leak several gigabytes of memory in a long session.
  * Fixed: unit halo remained after undoing a recall (issue 3065)
  * Fixed: unit halo intensity doubled during AMLA animation
  * [change_theme] no longer causes a Lua error when theme= is not specified
    instead of explicitly set to an empty string.
  * [change_theme] no longer requires running a separate action to update the
    UI afterwards (e.g. [redraw]) and the status panels are updated immediately.

    also fixes an assert at the start of HttT S7 (Sceptre of Fire) that had a

    as the first two turns of Dark Forecast
