Looking for QZDoom Testers

Postby Major Cooke » Tue Nov 19, 2019 2:36 pm

As some of you may have noticed on Discord, QZDoom devbuilds have begun to roll out recently.

These contain a selected 'batch' of features that have been merged into QZDoom for testing, and they certainly could use it. The sooner they're tested, the sooner bugs can be culled and the feature can be certified as ready for GZDoom itself.

Since they're in batches, not all of them have been pulled in yet to ensure QZDoom can keep up with changes made by GZDoom. This post will continuously be updated with information pertaining to what features are in and how they work.

***NOTICE***
Please bear in mind, QZDoom is an experimental testing ground. Therefor, changes to anything can happen at any given time with each new DRD build being released. This is much more volatile and can certainly break the new features.

I will post updates when something changes and detail all you need to know.

Here is what's in so far:

If you find any issues or bugs, please make sure to include [QZDoom] in the title of the bug report for clarity.

Also just to clarify as some folks have asked me on Discord: Until ALL selected parts have been fully merged or rejected, no new code submissions will be brought in until they're taken care of.

As mentioned in the first post, this is for the safety of QZDoom so maintenance is made easier, especially if people report bugs with some of the features. If sudden changes occur and someone completely redoes their submission from the ground up, this could potentially affect the other submissions and result in conflicts with source control.

TL;DR things can get messy.
