ioquake3 (or ioq3 for short) builds upon id Software's Quake 3 source code release. It cleans it up, fixes bugs, and adds features. Its goal is to be the Quake 3 distribution upon which people base their games and projects. Its design goals include optimizing the engine for playing Quake 3: Arena, Team Arena, and all popular mods. This distribution of the engine has been ported to many new platforms. While it doesn't have PunkBuster (and never will), it does provide more security for servers and clients by way of various bugfixes which aren't in id's client.
