After a long time and a lot of changes in project management we are very soon ready to release ezQuake 2.2 stable! Stay tuned for more information!
We are releasing ezQuake 2.1.1 at this moment. This is a hotfix release for 2.1, fixing the most crucial bug which affects ezQuake/nQuake installations in Program Files or other locations where the process does not have write permissions.
We plan to deliver also new 2.2 version with a new set of features within the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
Last week we have migrated the source code repository of our project to github.com. The SVN repository on sourceforge.net is no more valid.
The ezQuake team would like to ask everyone to fill in these two forms. Data obtained from both should result in everyone's benefit.
The first poll is ezQuake hardware compatibility list.
It should take you less than a minute to fill it in. The goal of this poll is to create a list of hardware combinations that are proven to work well with our client.... read more
Even if "2.0" version might suggest that this is somewhat reworked release of the ezQuake QuakeWorld client where something big was changed from scratch, it isn't quite so. As always there are many nice new main features like simple-items, Mumble support, IRC support, KTX support, early packets, and spectator interpolation, but also there many important bugfixes and also lots and lots of less significant features.... read more
The so-called QuakeWorld Summer Break has been announced to be over for most of the scene. For the ezQuake team it was over some more weeks ago, as we started working on getting the next version of our client ready to be released just in time. We have fixed lots of glitches we knew about and we are now presenting you the ezQuake 2.0 Beta 1 version. The stable version should come in a few weeks after this, depending on how crucial stuff will be found during the public beta testing.... read more
A month passed since 1.9.3 beta and today we've released final stable builds. This time for all platforms at one time!
The changes from 1.9.3 beta are close to none as there have been only two really minor bugfixes.
To recapitulate most important changes in 1.9.3:
- new f_ruleset reply - removes the need for all other f_* checks
- more strict movement scripts protection with keeping "strafe script" functionality via cl_iDrive
- in_raw_allbuttons - helps get more mouse buttons working in the game for some users... read more

Most active beta testers will get credits of course!
1.9 beta 1 download:
Unexpectedly, we had to fix an unpleasant issue in the latest official 1.8.2 version of the ezQuake QuakeWorld client. The check procedure used to verify models used in the game didn't correctly detect modifications done to those models.
In 1.8.3 version we do not rely with this check on the external security module, we do the check now in the client. The check now also correctly detects modified models that the security module for 1.8.2 failed to detect.... read more
ezQuake 1.8 stable release
It took longer then usual to make ezQuake ready for next stable release, but the time we needed was turned into an appropriate amount of work. We have put lots of efforts into developing, testing, and accepting suggestions. In April we managed to get into 50 most active projects on SourceForge.net, which hosts about 150 000 projects. Lots of people from QuakWorld community helped us with testing and adjusting features we made and we are grateful for this.... read more
We've released next beta version for the ezQuake stable release.
To take part in betatesting, head on to this forum thread:
Thanks all beta testers for their hard and valuable work.
This beta version should be 99.99% equal to the stable version which we will release hopefully in less then a week.
The author of the best QuakeWorld location definitions - flintheart - has updated his pack today. From now on you can customize also quad, pent, ring and suit location names, same like you always could by changing e.g. loc_name_ra variable within the client.
/set loc_name_ra $2$0$0
/set loc_name_quad &c44fquad&cfff
The Location files are now part of the ezQuake package.
ezQuake is evolving. New beta release is out and we'd like to try different approach to betatesting. We'd like to go deep and drag lots of people into testing our client. This is the first 1.8 beta release and we'd like to make at least one more before we give out 1.8 stable version.
Lots of new things awaits you in this version. Therefore don't hesitate and grab the links below. Instructions on how to take part in betatesting and what benefits it can bring you are included in the archive.
At the moment only Windows archive is available, Linux, Mac OS X and newly supported FreeBSD are coming very soon.... read more

There has been major progress in security module development yesterday. Disconnect finished the models validation part of it. Now Windows version is about to be compiled and tested. After that usuall debugging phase and I think it won't take long to security module for 1318 build to appear.
