Sorry about the lack of news updates, but we thought you'd probably all prefer an earlier release to a stream of news saying "It's not ready yet".
In any case: We're about finished with v3.0! Everything is pretty-much complete, there're just a few last things we need to see to before we can release. I hope you all enjoy it once it's out... there are a ton of tiny surprises we haven't really talked about. Currently there are just under two hundred items on the changelog, not including new and updated maps, models, etc.
Hopefully we'll have an interesting announcement for you within the next two days (not the release itself, but don't worry, it shouldn't be long now).
If you've been thinking about donating, this is pretty-much your last chance if you want your bonus features in v3.0. If you have donated in the past, but have not sent me your Steam ID (different from WON ID) and received a "Steam ID added"-type confirmation E-mail back from me, please do so ASAP, or we won't be able to give you the bonuses in Steam/newer versions of Half-Life. Information HERE.
Everyone, thanks for your patience! We hope you'll find that it's been worth the wait.
Update: A couple of people have just E-mailed me asking if the Steam compatibility issues we mentioned a while back have been solved. Don't worry, the problems have been found and corrected.
