>From the changelog of 1.19.3:
> +=== Changes since 1.19.2 ===
> +* (bug 40995) Prevent session fixation in Special:UserLogin (CVE-2012-5391)
> +* (bug 41400) Prevent linker regex from exceeding PCRE backtrack limit
> +* Increase permitted runtime for testParserTest (only used for continuous
> +  integration).
> +* Updated messages translations from http://translatewiki.net/

There's also a change in an error path (b45cb08) which could or could
not be related to the pcre changes (same author).

The "Increase permitted runtime for testParserTest" is a comment in the
docblock to tag the test as slow (67c844ca).
Specifically, it's unrelated to the change in LanguageTest.php which was
needed due to the localisation update to the time abbreviatures (8319670).

The changes can be viewed with:
 git diff 1.19.2  1.19.3 | filterdiff -x
"*/languages/messages/Messages*.php" -x
"*/includes/installer/Installer.i18n.php" -x
