The Carmack Speaketh

John Carmack updated his .plan with news of a new Q3Test in mid-September. Here's a snip:
The current plan is that we will have another test release around the middle of next month. This version will be running game/cgame/ui with the virtual machine, and will include single player play against bots. No new maps.

I will be releasing the source for all the VM modules with it, and setting the executable up so that it will allow modified modules to be used.
Finally we'll get to play against bots! The only reason Q2 is on my hard drive right now is to play against Ridah's Eraser bot. Carmack doesn't say if you will be able to spawn bots in multiplayer or not. Also, he'll be testing his new VM code which will allow community members to write mods! Suffice it to say, this is going to be cool . . .

His .plan also includes an updated worklog and an encouragement to users with 64M memory to consider getting some more. I would think that would be especially true of people (like myself) using Win98, which is a resource hog anyway.
