The new version boasts a host of new and updated content as well as a new stats account system, renderer updates/improvements/bugfixes, and a new game mode, Insta-Rockets. Four brand new levels have been introduced, as well as a new violator model, updated player skins with glow effects, all new powerup models(including the new megahealth!), and updates to a variety of other skins and textures.

Some of the new features include:

  • Many new models and textures

Is there ever going to be an update to the menus? Maybe it's because I play it in 1920x1080, but the options text and server browser text is almost unreadable because there's large spaces between every letter.

Yeah, the menus are one of the top priorities. The guy that was working on them took ill, so his work was never completed. Currently we are waiting for idtech4 to come out, and will likely poach that menu system into our engine.

Oh, and try changing to one of the true type fonts, it should be quite readable.
