While Unreal Tournament 3 for Linux has been tied up in Epic's legal department, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars has been maturing quite nicely since its introduction earlier this year. This week the Windows development team had announced ET: Quake Wars v1.4 would be available before Christmas with a host of new features. Today at Phoronix we can now confirm that this update will also be available for Linux gamers in a timely fashion.

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars v1.4 has many new features, among which are updates to the user interface, basic training for new players, and auto-downloading support of new ET:QW mods and maps. The interface updates include a "hot servers" addition to the server browser, improved HUD (Heads-Up Display) modes, and other minor changes. For those interested in watching any ET: Quake Wars gaming whether it be online game-play or a LAN tournament, Quake Wars v1.4 introduces ETQW:TV. This option allows for spectators to view Quake Wars matches and with full support for repeater and relay servers. ETQW:TV comes complete with security options and broadcast delay capabilities. This update also contains game-play balance and network improvements.

The Enemy Territory: Quake Wars v1.4 update for Linux is currently in closed testing and at a release candidate stage. We would suspect that the Enemy Territory: Quake Wars v1.4 update for Linux should available around the same time as the new Windows build, which is looking to be next week. The experience in our internal ET:QW v1.4 testing thus far has been stable and is certainly a nice update with interesting changes.
