Threewave CTF for Q3A

Redwood posted the news that he (and others?) have finished making/converting the Threewave CTF maps for Quake III Arena. Here's what he had to say:
The Threewave CTF maps for Quake 3 have been finished. There's no known release date for the maps yet but it should be soon(tm). I've spent a lot of time recently with a bunch of hardcore CTFers testing the maps and they are indeed very excellent maps. While I find the id CTF maps to be fast and furious, they are more for casual/small CTF play. All three of the Threewave maps are well suited for clan/tournament level CTF and also can hold many more players than the included Q3A CTF levels. There are many strategies, escape routes, and good defending points. I'm sure they will be classics and get MANY hours of play for the next couple of years. If you're a CTF fan, you should be drooling with anticipation for these maps! :)
The only thing is--there's no grapple now. I wonder what "modifications" they made to account for this?

Update! sCary is reporting that the maps were made "by a few idSoftware employees including Zoid." Fortunately that means that they were not slapped together by a couple of guys with only basic knowledge of q3map and the original Threewave maps. More details to come, I'm sure.

Update #2: sCary is now reporting that there will be more than three new CTF maps released. There are just three Threewave maps being released. I hope they get these out soon, I'm pretty anxious to try them out.
