The Battleship is weak against bomber plains. (See patch #7620)
The Battleship's defense is halved when attacked by a Bomber or a Stealth Bomber. The motivation behind this change is to make it easier to defend against battleships. (Battleships can bombard 3 tiles away.) It is inspired by the 1921 American experiment where SMS Ostfriesland was sunk by bombers and by how battleships were massacred in WWII.
It is possible that the rule (or something like it) should be expanded to similar units. Arguments for why the rule should/shouldn't include a certain unit type is welcome. Patches accompanied by the reasoning for expanding it too.

The Leader can now heal it self and other light weight land units. (See patch #7775)

the Leaders remaining movement points.

Moving from a ship to the beach doesn't spend all movement points. (See hrm Feature #643525)
This eliminates the surprise (for someone new to Freeciv) when units landed on some beach can't move on until next turn.

Railroads can't be used by enemy units by default. (See hrm Feature #653510)
This makes building railroads more valuable. It balances that a unit can land on your island without losing all its moves.
To permit the enemy to use your railroads disable the restrictinfra server setting.
Roads can now be used by the enemy even if the restrictinfra server setting is enabled.
