Unvanquished Alpha 36 was released on Sunday with a number of gamer-facing changes while on a technical side it looks like next month's Alpha 37 will be more exciting.

Unvanquished Alpha 36 features two new models, two mapping updates, gameplay improvements, and other work for this open-source game powered by its own Daemon engine.

When it comes to the game engine, they're preparing the NaCL code for a tentative public release of the new VM system for next month -- the Unvanquished Alpha 37 for March. Using Google Native Client to replace QVM is part of their quest of rewriting and modernizing the Quake 3 base from what the Daemon Engine is formed.

NaCl is already used server-side but it's coming client-side in hopefully the next release to completely replace QVM.

More details on Unvanquished Alpha 36 can be found via the announcement at Unvanquished.net.
