QuakeLight in Moonlight

As we approach Moonlight 2.0 beta, more and more cool websites are starting to work under Moonlight. This week the team got QuakeLight working!

Here is a screenshot of QuakeLight under Moonlight in action:

Please note that there appears to be a bug in the version of Cairo that we embed into Moonlight which prevents the graphics from displaying on some NVidia and ATI cards (at least depending on which drivers you use?). It works fine on my Intel i965 graphics chipset, though.

There's also a bug where it runs out of file descriptors after a while (which I'll be looking into shortly since it crops up for DrPopper as well).

Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
