Half-Life Dedicated Server

Here's an announcement from Valve about the release of the new dedicated Half-Life server (I ganked this from Stomped since I can't find my copy--my Eudora has been relentlessly eating mail again lately):

We've completed our testing of the latest version of our Win32 server and it is now posted on

This new server is backward-compatible with the existing Half-Life client codebase, so players will be able to connect and play on your server immediately after you upgrade.

In this new version:
- All known cheats/exploits are fixed.
- Running hlds + from the command line will heartbeat to the WON master server.

There are two files on the WON server:

1) Hlserver.exe (~80 MB) -- This is the full download of the latest version of the Win32 server. This includes all the files necessary to run a Team Fortress Classic or Half-Life server.

2) Hlserver10101012.exe (~500k) -- This is the update to the Primary Server Package that will upgrade you from the previous update from WON (hlserver10011002.exe).
