QTAKE 1.5, QTAKE Server 2.0 and QTAKE Monitor 4.0 now available

Please update your installations to QTAKE 1.5, QTAKE Server 2.0 and QTAKE Monitor 4.0. It took us some extra weeks, but it was neccessary to launch all three applications at the same time, so here they come!

Important notice for QTAKE Monitor users

QTAKE Monitor 4 is backwards compatible with all versions of QTAKE’s STREAM module, but not with QTAKE Server. For independent playback using QTAKE Server, a combination of QTAKE 1.5, QTAKE Server 2.0 and QTAKE Monitor 4.0 is required. Users who wish to complete their current projects using QTAKE 1.4 and QTAKE Server 1.5 should download QTAKE Monitor 3 via TestFlight as QTAKE Monitor Beta.
