After about 4 months of a beta period, 3.0 final was just released today. Changelog can be found here (http://www.unknownworlds.com/ns/v30-changelog.html). I am getting a 500k/sec download from here (http://www.wavve.org/files/ns_install_v3.exe). Installation instructions can be found on the main NS page if you have never played NS before (requires steam and the classic HL1.)

The word on the future development of this game is that 3.1 will come out with a massive change in gameplay style (aka the "big unannounced system" will be revealed.) After 3.1 sees a final release, there will be a direct port to the source engine (code only that is.) The graphics will remain the same as the original at first until an effort to make higher detailed textures and models gets underway. No word on how long this will take, although the developers say it should come "relatively quickly."

More details on that in this interview (http://www.cgonline.com/content/view/360/2/).

Woot, downloading now. Really looking forward to trying this out, I haven't played NS in a while. Hope the servers I play on are still up...
