Mark Adams, president of Westlake Interactive, has contacted IMG regarding the Unreal Tournament patch that was released last week for the PC. He also mentions that they will be working on the OpenGL portion of UT. Here is Mark's update:
We have received the 432 code, and plan to do this update for the Mac. The 432 patch fixes many things, one of which is the somewhat annoying requirement that the CD must be inserted to play. Here is a partial list:
There isn't a timetable though, so I don't know when it will be ready.
We're also trying to clean up the OpenGL drivers inside UT with this next

faster server ping response for servers with mutators
fixed bug causing player team choice to be overriden
fixed thrown weapons sinking into ground in net play
improved map decompression time
limit translocator firing rate (max 2/sec) to prevent translocator spamming bind cheats
suicides are counted as deaths
Mac gamers have a lot to be thankful for, since Westlake Interactive is not receiving any compensation for patches after the initial release of the game.
