Quake 3 v1.17 released

Today's Quake 3 patch is brought to you by the letter P and the number 7. The latest version (1.17) fixes a serious security flaw in Quake 3 that allowed servers to overwrite any file on a player's computer! Ouch. The new version is, of course, not compatible with any previous version of Quake 3, so you'll have to download it if you want to play online.
