[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: terminfo-5.3-1

The terminfo package has been updated to version 5.3-1.  It
contains the terminfo database that enables proper operation
of ncurses-based applications.  Normally, the terminfo database
is distributed WITH ncurses; but we've split it out to enable
updates on an accelarated schedule.  If needed.  Not that it has been.

CHANGES (since 5.2-3)
o update to the improved ncurses-5.3 terminfo.src
   - you do NOT need to install the 'test' ncurses-5.3 packages to
     use this release of terminfo.  It will work fine with your
     existing ncurses-5.2 libraries and programs.
   - some improvements to the TERM=cygwin mode from Thomas Dickey
