XDG support: note to Linux users

Starting from today VCMI supports XDG filesystem specifications. Meaning that all “nighty” builds and in future - 0.96 will follow these specs instead of placing all data in ~/.vcmi.

All user data has been moved according to specs:

  • Game data (H3 files and mods) and saves: from ~/.vcmi to ~/.local/share/vcmi
  • Temporary files, including logs: from ~/.vcmi to ~/.cache/vcmi
  • Config files: from ~/.vcmi/config to ~/.config/vcmi

For compatibility VCMI will read game data from ~/.vcmi as well but this is temporary behavior and will be removed after next release.
