There is a new hedgewars available, but something odd is going on with
the source archive. The original pointed to in the release notes is
hedgewars-src-0.9.19.1.tar.bz2, but hedgewars-src-0.9.19.tar.bz2 was built
a day later and includes some new changes and hasn't been advertised. (Note
the version number did decrease.)
A few of the patches need to be tweaked (including the Lua 5.2 one), so
it might take a bit before I get a new build in Fedora.
Also related to Lua, is that they are talking about switching to Lua 5.2
in another release or two.
