Warsow 2.0 Released With Better Graphics, CC-Licensed Game Assets
It's been a while since the last Warsow game release, but that changed yesterday with the release of the Warsow 2.0 open-source first person shooter release.
Warsow 2.0 adds a tutorial level to help new gamers, many graphical effects were revamped, weapon parameters were tweaked, new HUDs, and many other changes.
The Warsow 2.0 renderer is reported to be 30~50% faster for overall performance, reduced vRAM footprint for textures, KTX texture format support, support for the GLSL binary cache, multi-threading to speed-up map loading, and many other interesting changes.

This release also relicenses Warsow assets under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 license for ensuring the game is fully free.
More details on Warsow 2.0 can be found via the game's web-site at Warsow.gg. I'll be updating the Warsow test profile shortly for Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking.
