We had many reports of Windows users not being able to launch the just released Picard 2.5.3. This is a hotfix release to address this issue. There are no changes for other platforms.
The updated version is available from the Picard download page.
Thanks a lot to everyone reporting on this issue and helping to get this resolved quickly and sorry for the trouble.
