Warsow 2.1 (Quake-Like Game) Has Been Released

As you may know, Warsow is an open-source, multi-platform, first-person shooter game, being somehow similar to the good old Quake 3 game, but it provides a cartoonish look and feel.

The latest version available is Warsow 2.1 (stable), which brings a big list of changes. For information about this release, see the official announcement.
