Surely it should have been a 3.3 pre-build, the first of which actually released today (gzdoom-g3.3pre-1-g69abf09). What does gzdoom-g3.2pre-598-g4f35940 have that's not in the 3.2.0 release, or was that dev build just released a few days late?

The version change/bump happened on the 7th, which was after that build was uploaded. You can consider that build as part of the 3.3pre family.

I will let Graf speak for himself on the issue, but the issue of the tagging and version bumps is reflective of another issue entirely, and not necessarily a bad one, at that, but one that does affect us. To sum it up, I'll put it in two words: "Real Life." Again - I am not trying to speak for Graf on that, though.

At any rate, the underlying maintenance of the overall organization scheme itself falls to the remainder of us developers, and I realize I was a day late on that version bump, but I was not sure if that was my decision to make to do that, but in order to maintain the status quo I had to take action before too many more commits were made while still on the 3.2pre schedule. Graf hasn't been very clear on what he wants to do with the management of the port, just yet, and to be quite honest I don't think he's fully decided yet, either.

Again, before you all get your panties all up in a bunch and start screaming the end of the world and the apocalypse is upon us and to start running for the hills, I will reiterate two simple words on this subject - "Real Life." So you can rest easy now. ;)

Still stuck on GZdoom v 2.2.0 with the Wrath of Cronos mod. I tried updating and it made all my mods useless (with tons of script errors), so i had to revert back.

Sorry to be blunt, but it sounds like you did something wrong. There's no reason a game engine that's been designed for backwards compatibility should be causing that much issue with that many mods.

The issue is simply that with a new job I have a lot less time to dedicate to Doom. Even for getting 3.2 out I had to invest a full weekend I'd have preferred to spend differently. So what can I do? Right now I simply have no time to allocate to GZDoom programming and that won't change for several more months to come.

Unless the mod never updates, WoC(1.8a and the unofficial v2 from moddb) seems gives Fatal error then abort on startup(Execution could not continue.: 629 errors while parsing DECORATE scripts) with GZDooM 3.2.0 release, but since the mod never get proper updates so not surprises.

Rachael: At one point, Graf fixed an issue where things like missing parameters weren't detected. I.e.
Code: Select allExpand view
TNT1 A 0 A_Jump

This was never an error until within the past year or two. Chances are, it's probably the modder's doing, intentional or not.

It certainly broke AEons of Death and Doom 4 For Doom.
