Don't know how I missed this one, well actually I do, it involves spending an entire weekend playing PS2 games, but anyhow, there's a new patch out for Unreal Tournament 2003, brining you up to v2199. The Win32 version weighs in at 12MB, while the Linux version comes in at 10MB. There's been quite a few updates/changes made with this release so be sure to grab it.
 
Full Story:
CHANGE LIST in v2199:

GamePlay:
- Ambient weapon sounds (like minigun) aren't affected by level ambient sound
volume changes.
- fixed translocator trail effect sometimes not working at start of game
- fixed blue translocator trail
- enabled weather effects on DE bonus pack maps
- made weapon ammo bars more visible on HUD
- terrain collision bug fix (this fixes the holes on CTF-Citadel and BR-Anubis)
- fixed Geothermal red flag base pipe hole
- fixed personal weapon stats for zoom instagib.
- fixed BR ball getting stuck in BR-TwinTombs
- fixed shark skin in multiplayer (DM-Oceanic)
- allow players to join chosen team even if its filled with bots
- fixed switchtolastweapon not working properly with link, lightning, and
painter
- Made minigun and link "lock-down" effect configurable (server-side). To
change the effect, you will need to add the following lines to your UT2003.ini
file, in the [UnrealGame.xDeathmatch] section:

MinigunLockDownFactor=1.0
LinkLockDownFactor=1.0

The default is 1.0. A value of 0 = no momentum imparted, so no lockdown. This
is visible in the game rules (in the server browser, or when pressing F2).

- added ability to turn off translocator switching back to previous weapon if
fire is pressed while alt-fire still held down. To change, add the following
section to your user.ini file:
[XWeapons.Translauncher]
bPrevWeaponSwitch=false

Spectating:
- Added setspectatespeed exec function, which allows you to change the speed at
which spectator moves on the fly. Default speed is 600.
- improved spectating switching between viewed players
- switching between viewed players doesn't lose behindview setting
- added player names and beacons to spectator view. Can be hidden by adding
the line bHideSpectatorBeacons=true to the [Engine.PlayerController] section of
your UT2003.ini.
- don't show "now viewing" at resolutions < 640x480
- added viewed player name to first person HUD.

Mod support:
- Fixed AddIni command for updating ini files by patches and umods.
- fixed a problem with ReviewJumpSpots on some levels. (ReviewJumpSpots is
used to verify that bots can use the Jumpspots as they are currently placed and
flagged).
- Modified Speech Binder and Controls config to be more flexible

Networking/Servers:
- reduced cheat protection false positives
- stats work for servers with bots (bots not included in stats)
- fixed: tournament mode can be configured from ut2003.ini
- removed log spam when players join using model not on server
- fixed bots balancing servers
- Fixed performance issue with ElecFields on dedicated servers
- Fixed challenge/response mechanism to prevent fake players
- String memory allocation server crash fix.
- Remove \'s before returning player and server name in GameSpy query
- Disable echo replies in GameSpy query
- Fixed nametable overflow crash for hacked package files
- Fixed unreal:// URL overflow crash
- Limit number of successful connections from a single IP per minute.
Configured by these settings (default values):

[IpDrv.TcpNetDriver]
MaxConnPerIPPerMinute=5
LogMaxConnPerIPPerMin=False

Webadmin:
- Removed config keyword from QueryHandlers variable declaration
- Added server name to browser title bar in webadmin
- Fixed CurrentGame maplist select not auto-selecting the currently playing map
in webadmin
- Fixed mutator sorting on Mutators page in webadmin

- Added support for banning/unbanning by ID to webadmin (hash appears in Player

- Fixed display problem with mutators that do not have configured groups
- Added checks to IPPlayer page for invalid IP addresses in ban list
- Completed localization support for webadmin
- Added security level listing to Rules/Settings pages (master admin will see
associated security level for each setting)

Demo Recording:

- fixed ping on scoreboard of client-side demos
- fixed client-side demo playback speed problem
- fixed various weapon effects (bullet hits, link beam) with client-side demos
- fixed client-side demo playback jerkiness

Menus/Interface:

- added icons to server browser, showing if servers are passworded, have stats
support, are latest version, are running any mutators, or are running instagib.
- Properly disconnect from server when getting back to the main menu
- Fixed the Password entry dialog to convert " ", "?" and "\" to "_"
- Fixed stats dialogue to auto-select "enable stats" when you first connect to
a stats server
