As you may have noticed we now have a new Website. And there is a new defrag version.

This is the 4th generation of our website at www.q3df.org and this time it's a 100% rewrite. This website came a long way and we hope you like it.

In case you find a bug please report it using either the forum or the "drop us a message"-box at the bottom of the page.

Also there is a new defrag version out. It is still compatible with the previous version so you don't have to update. Most of the servers already are on the current version.

For some time the worldspawn map database has a new URL http://ws.q3df.org. It used to be "q3a.ath.cx" but that is in the past now. That provider stopped forwarding the domain to our servers. That's why it now can only be accessed via http://ws.q3df.org.

Unfortunately that affects the auto download feature of dfengine and iodfe, too.
To continue downloading maps you have to change the dl_source cvar.
set it to "http://ws.q3df.org/getpk3bymapname.php/%m"

Right now all mDd developers are meeting in one place for a weeks worth of programming. You might have noticed that we fixed some issues with the foreign servers today and brought them back online again.

More to come, stay tuned :)
