Infinity Ward has released the first official software development kit for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The file weighs in at 603MB compressed and includes CoD4 Radiant mapping tools, Maya Binaries for modeling and everything else the mod'er will need to create mods ranging from simple scripts to server-side mods to total conversions. So far the lack of official tools hasn't stopped the community from releasing mods for this great game, but they have mostly been limited to texture replacements. But from now on I'm sure we'll be seeing much more than that.
Infinity Ward has also opened a for those interested in using the mod tools, which may be particularly interesting for those new to mod'ing. Currently the wiki is read-only, but IW vows to add articles regularly and once a good foundation of knowledge and tutorials is laid, they will open it up for community editing.
