As we have both developers and normal users here who all rely on the
same group of servers, newer clients under development typically are
running with servers that are one or two releases older. Also because
not everyone is always too eager to upgrade their working client, the
servers are generally capable of supporting all clients that have the
same first two digits in their released version number.

So a 5.3.13 server 'should' be able to handle any client release between
5.3.1 and 5.3.15. Ofcourse there are probably exceptions to this rule.
