netrek-client-cow 3.2.5 was released, containing extensive refinements
to the metaserver window, improved handling of server disconnection,
better integration with ICCM window managers, and a new window is opened
for play when in metaserver mode.

Also adds a mercenary mode, where hitting space or enter during team
selection will join the least represented team, or a random team if no
players are present on the server.  The same key also returns to the
game after death, using the current team and ship type.  This is a
backport of a Pygame client feature.
