ZDoom 2.7.1

Postby randi » Tue Jul 02, 2013 7:52 pm

ZDoom 2.7.1 is now available from the download page. This version includes the following changes from 2.7.0:
  • Added new additive GameInfo keywords: AddCreditPage, AddPlayerClasses, and AddInfoPage.
  • Added a new DONTDRAIN flag to mark actors as ineligible for vampirism attacks.
  • Compatibility fixes for Ultimate Simplicity map07, Cheogsh map01, Super Sonic Doom map31
  • Polyobject mirror numbers can no longer be changed with SetLineSpecial. This was never a supported feature and caused problems for legitimate uses of SetLineSpecial on polyobject lines.
  • The powered-up Gold Wand was not puffing on actors.
  • Disabled Heretic's punishment cheats when in allcheats mode.
  • Objects that explode on death no longer deal the damage they were dealt instead of their own.
  • Vampirism attacks now respect damage reduction.
  • Demo recording now writes correct user info to demos.
  • ACS's PlaySound for looping sounds now works properly when using channel flags.

A new release already! Are we expecting frequent releases from now on?

I would like to do more frequent bug fix releases now. That's what the maint branch is for. I would have liked to do it for Subversion, too, but branches are kind of a pain to work with in Subversion compared to Git.

Feature releases may or may not be more frequent.

Out of curiosity, what does "maint" mean? Is it the equivilent of SVN's "trunk"? Is "maint" a standardized name?

"master" is equivalent to trunk. maint is short for maintenance, it's a branch that contains primarily bug fixes.

Or another way of putting it:
maint = ZDoom 2.7.x
master = ZDoom 2.8.0

More frequent releases in general is an awesome development :p
