After a few days of RC state, both MVDSV
were released as stable. They proved being far more stable than any previous versions.
Time to update your servers!
For server admins updating, please READ THE BOTTOM NOTE as it contains informations about how not to get stuck with your old configuration!
While changelog and release notes are still being compiled (there have been quite a few changes since last stable versions of both programs), downloads are available from QW-DEV.net as the following places:KTX download pageMVDSV download page
More builds will make their way to the download pages soon and if you compiled a flavor that is not yet available, feel free to contact people on #mvdsv or #ktx to submit it.
Hope you'll enjoy those!

Command line option +gamedir was replaced by new option -game. Our server package contains this change but if you use your own, remember to change that.
This also requires changing sv_gamedir option in mvdsv.cfg to sv_gamedir qw (our package has proper configuration). Or in some other config if you did your own configs.
