It has been a long road, but ioquake3 1.36 is almost ready!
In order to release ioquake3 1.36 it would be most appreciated if you downloaded a zip file or tarball, compiled it for your system, and tested it! If you find any bugs, please search bugzilla, and then report them!
voipNot only that, but we finally have a list of the improvements that have gone into this release. Those improvements include:

  • Ports to new platforms
  • Off-server data downloads (http redirection) via HTTP and FTP with cURL
  • OpenAL sound rendering allowing for surround (5.1 and 7.1) speaker layouts and generally improved sound

    quality. Especially on the Windows Vista Operating System.

  • Ogg Vorbis audio decoding.
  • In-engine VOIP support, with optional Mumble player-location support.
  • IPV6 Networking. We're ready to frag on the net of the future!
  • SDL backend for the OpenGL context, window management, and input. This also improves portability.
  • Anaglyph stereo rendering (for viewing with 3D glasses)
  • Full x86-64 architecture support
  • Rewritten PowerPC JIT compiler, with ppc64 support
  • Compilation with MinGW and cross-compilation for Windows for Linux
  • Improved console command auto-completion
  • Persistent console command history
  • Improved QVM (Quake Virtual Machine) tools
  • Colored terminal output on POSIX operating systems
  • GUID System
  • Multiuser support on Windows systems (user-specific game data is stored in their respective Application Data folders)
  • PNG format support for textures
  • Numerous security fixes
