Will this release fix issues with dual-core systems?

What issues do you mean? The quake 3 engine is not optimized for multi core systems. It usually uses only one core.

Actually I experience abysmal framerates during any sort of action. It can't possibly be my graphics card (8800 GTS) so the most likely culprit would be my 2.2 dual opteron. I'm also aware that this is a Q3 issue as I have the same problems running Warsow (or any other Q3 game for that matter), and setting the core affinity to a single core fixes the problem. I was hoping that there was something the Q3 modders had up their sleeves to make Q3 run smoother on dual core technology, but I suppose not. :P
