Release Notes: Bugfixes and general code cleanup.
Release Notes: Grappling Hook code split off into separate gamelet, so it can be used for games besides CTF now. Level changing and map-choosing code also a separate gamelet, so it can be easily replaced or extended.
Release Notes: This version features a revamped messaging system which makes it very easy to write gamelets to do things such as: spam/flood supression, bad language filters, chat logging, etc.
Release Notes: This release is mostly general bugfixes and architecture improvements. Please note that Q2Java is now hosted on PlanetQuake, and visit the homepage for info on a new mailing list for interested developers.
Release Notes: Added support for reading/writing map information in XML format, coders are able to define new XML tags that server admins can place in map files to control what happens when a level runs and the package includes example Java gamelets which let admins easily set CVars and load/unload other gamelets on a map-by-map basis just by editing an XML file.
