Subject: CPL And The Q3 1.17 Point Release

The people over at Challenge-US have asked Mike Wardell, the CPL Commissioner, about whether or not Quake3 Point Release 1.25 will be used over 1.17 depending on if it is released in the near future or not. Here is the small conversation:

CHUS: Mike, thanks for taking the time to read this. I remember an issue before Frag3 about the version of Quake3Test that was used. Version 1.08 was released about a month prior to the event and it was used instead of 1.07 for the tournament, although the change from 1.07 to 1.08 Q3Test wasn't that significant.

My question: If 1.25 comes out of beta and becomes final, would the CPL choose to use it instead of 1.17?

Mike: 1.25 is still 2-4 weeks away at best, probably longer. At this later stage of Q3, we need to give players more lead time than that for any new version. We're planning to use 1.17 barring any unexpected sudden releases.
Looks like this CPL event will squeak by with the 1.17 point release.
