It's been a while since last hearing anything from Icculus, a.k.a. Ryan Gordon, about any games or other software that he has been porting to Linux. The main project that we still have yet to see from him is the Unreal Tournament 3 client that is now going on two years late. Early this morning Ryan provided an update on his "finger" (blog), but Unreal Tournament 3 nor any other game projects were mentioned.

Ryan's blog update simply notes that a new release of SDL 1.2 is coming soon. This new SDL release is going to bring its use of ALSA by default over OSS and also has rewritten PulseAudio code. It's unfortunate that no other news was passed along. He is also supposed to be working on the Aquaria Linux game port and potentially America's Army 3.
