What's new in this version:

Installer Change
- Installers have been componentized to allow for more control over what’s installed with Unity. Please utilize the Download Assistant for full control. The Editor component is now minimized to be the editor, webplayer and MonoDevelop

System Requirement Changes
- Windows XP support for running the Editor is dropped
- Windows XP SP1 dropped for Windows Player and Web Player support (XP SP2+ required)
- Windows Store Apps 8/Windows Phone 8 support is dropped (previously deprecated in 5.2); 8.1 apps are the minimum now
- OS X 10.8 required now for Player and Web Player (dropping 10.7)

Known Issues
- Editor hangs after pressing "Add new branch group" button within Tree Editor window in the Inspector (OSX). Should be fixed in a following patch release.
- Editor often crashes on Windows 10 when locking Windows, when using DirectX 9
- ETC1 compression format not playing well with Asset bundles generated with 5.2
- Multiple displays do not report the correct resolution when using non-native resolutions, they report the screen resolution and not the game resolution. For Patch 1, the UI system has had multiple display support disabled on all platforms except WiiU and 3DS.
- Particle billboard shadows are not oriented correctly in 5.3, but should be fixed in 5.4
- Particle normals are different between versions 5.1 and 5.2. A fix will arrive in a patch release.
- Unity hangs when selecting objects in scene view. Fix is in-bound for patch release, but still undergoing testing.
- SSR (Screen Space Reflections) image effect will be available during the 5.3 release cycle on the forums and asset store. We have a few minor issues to address still before we feel it is ready to be built-in.
- OpenGL (new GLCore backend)
- GPU Profiler disabled for OpenGL on OSX in Editor. Works with Standalone Player still.
- White artifacts on update of editor windows like resizing
- Player crashes on iOS 6 on startup
- UI: Root Canvas with no UI will not render Child Canvas. Fix will arrive in a patch release.
- UWP does not build on recently released Windows SDK (version 10.0.10586.0) . A fix will arrive in a patch release.
