The upcoming release has been delayed to "before Christmas". In an odd turn of events, I happen to be going to Winter CPL
this year, which is in Dallas, Texas. Since this eats up my time from Dec 13th-19th I can't be around to test, package, and release.
If any professional CS players here are attending this event, I hope to see you there! Unless you've been banned from the forums! In which case please stay away from me! ;)
Furthermore, I've added a new plugin forum where the Plugin Team will be placing old, abandoned, or unapproved plugins. This will help us approve and sort new plugins much faster.
Lastly, you might remember the "Official Server" idea we bounced around in Off-Topic about two months ago. This idea didn't die; Basic-Master and I decided to work on a custom mod for and launch it after 1.65 was released. BM informs me that we're very close to finishing "GabenMod", a new style of class system plugin for AMX Mod X, which will be released to the public once the server goes live (most likely shortly after 1.65 is released).
So, hopefully we'll have some of our own gifts for the community by the new year!
