This just came in, and shows what's possible from a company that cares 
about server admins. Epic is currently my standard by which I judge other 
game companies. (Valve has been doing a pretty good job on the hlds_linux 
list, as well.) This also illustrates how you can update servers without 
requiring a client update. We can only hope that EA is taking notes.

Subject: [ut2004servers] Beta patch 3362

This patch is currently available for windows clients and servers. You
can get the patch from
http://unreal.epicgames.com/files/ut2004-winpatch3362BETA.exe  .

Please mirror it. This patch is not intended for public distribution,
since it is a beta. What this means is - feel free to distribute it
informally to anyone that will help test it, but please don't post it on
public web sites. This patch is completely compatible with the retail
version and previous patches - servers and clients of any flavor can
connect with each other. This patch will not overwrite your ut2004.ini
and user.ini files, except to update settings as necessary.

This patch should be installed *after* installing the Epic ECE Bonus
Pack, as it updates some of the game code included with the bonus pack.

The patch change list is included in the patch. After installing the
patch, you can find it at ut2004\help\readmepatch.int.txt. Here are the
changes from 3355 to 3362:

Thanks to John Barrett for a number of fixes.

General Gameplay:
- Fixed DriverLeft() not be called when driver dies in vehicle without
vehicle being destroyed.  This fixes the vehicle not resetting, and
fixes effects like the engine sound not being turned off.
- Fixed some vehicle weapon effects staying around when bots stopped
firing them.
- Fixed spider mine layer incorrectly reducing mine count when a fired
spider mine immediately explodes.
- Fixed manta and raptor spinning sometimes when player enters
- SPMA camera explodes if it hits water.
- Don't allow SPMA camera view to go outside world.
- Invasion HUD radar uses the viewed pawn's rotation rather than the
spectator's rotation.
- Fixed low gravity not working properly in second and successive rounds
of onslaught.
- Moved announcements for assault energycore to ASOBJ_EnergyCore_Spawn,
and made them editable by level designers.
- Fixed spawning multiple energycores in Assault.
- Can now throw linkgun with 1 ammo left.
- Fixed exploit where shieldgun could be used to protect against lava or
slime volume damage.
- Fixed CTF Flags not returning exploit
- Various networking serialization optimizations.
- Fixed issues where players would not properly be sent to the
Spectating state on clients.
- Fix for eyeheight getting screwed up on client
- Server optimization - players don't do line of sight checks with each
- Don't replicate pawn.ViewPitch to netowner
- Fixed CTF flag not properly attaching to vehicles on net clients.
- Made CD key hashes sent by clients more secure.
- Fixed various exploits.
- Merged Michiel Hendrick's HTTP redirect code improvements.

- Return rather than asserting in UCanvas::WrappedPrint() if no valid
- Fixed -Mod= to support proper exporting of headers
- Convert '|' to '_' in player names.
- Fixed cut and paste error in MidGamePanel.uc that could cause crashes
on level changes. (thanks Wormbo)
