GZDoom Builder 2.3. Based on Doom Builder 2 SVN rev. 1604.
GZDoom Builder is a fork of Doom Builder 2, started in march 2012. The aim of this project is to support more features from modern-day doom engines (namely, ZDoom, GZDoom and Zandronum) and add more editing tools to make map creation faster and simpler.

Features:
Spoiler:

Changelog:
See Changelog.txt in the program directory.

Required software:
Notice: these components are installed automatically when using GZDoom Builder installer.
Notice: alternatively, you can grab them as a single archive from DRD Team.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) (required only by the Nodes Viewer plugin).
Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5. Notice: if you already have .Net Framework 4.0 or later installed, you'll still need to install 3.5 version, because newer versions are not backwards compatible with it!
DirectX 9.0 Runtime. Notice: required even if you already have DirectX 10, 11 or 12 installed.

System requirements:
• 2.4 GHz CPU or faster (multi-core recommended).
• Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 10.

HOLY CRAP DOWNLOADING

EDIT:

is it safe for me to just dump this into my current Doom Builder 2 r1489 folder and start using it right away? Or is there anything I need to be aware of?

Well, original Builder.exe will be overwritten with mine and game configurations (especially "Includes" folder) may be messed up. Other than that it should be fine :)

Instead of making a fork, why not help codeimp improve his gzdoom plugin?

That was my first thought. But after looking through code, I did't find a way to do that in a plugin (because I don't think Doom Builder's core classes like Render2D/3D or WorldVertex, or shader related ones can be changed/overriden by plugin).
Besides, there isn't much activity in Doom Builder 2 development now.

Can it render 3D floors and slopes in 3D view mode?

The official Doom Builder 2 already can do that with its GZDoom Visual Mode plugin.

It uses the same GZDoom Visual mode plugin as Doom Builder 2, so yes, it can. Currently 3D floors aren't affected by dynamic lights though.

Dude, if this works the way I hope it does I f'ing love it! :D Downloading ASAP!

I've always thought it would be awesome to implement Worldcraft-like features into Doom Builder.

Edit: never mind, the program crashes immediately at startup. :C ("GZDoom Builder has stopped working") Glad I didn't overwrite my old Doom Builder for this. :P

Have you downloaded the .NET & SlimDX frameworks? [I can't remember which ones, though]

I think I have .NET installed, not sure though. Can you provide me with a link? I still have GZBuilder on my desktop so I can try again.

There are setup files for .Net Framework 3.5 and SlimDX 2.0 in "GZDoomBuilder 1.0\Setup\" folder

Works great so far, and I was about to report that the dynamic lights don't work on 3-d floor sectors, but it looks like you are aware of the issue. Hope this gets fixed.

Also looking forward to dynamic lights from DECORATE actors/GLDEFS.

Any plans for coloured fog support?

This editor is amazing. Thumbs up. :D
