Should I overwrite to update or delete and replace the old one?

It's up to you, you can do whatever you want with it - but most people just overwrite and replace.

OK, that's what I'll do.

Groundbreaking new features often require a few intermediate versions to address some issues.

Waaah, I have to work round the clock to keep GZDoom up to date. The pressure is unbearable.

Not really of cause.. here it goes:
https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.zdoom.GZDoom

And, in the last week, we had: 234 downloads, which puts the total on 1494.

Edit
I also bought a Pinebook Pro, so I'm currently doing some tests to compile and distribute GZDoom for ARM. No promises though, there are some weird linking issues so it might take some time to work out.

As always, thanks to Count Graf for yet another GZD release.

Wiki page will be updated as we speak.

My compliments.

Had to take a break of about 16 months for my project. Upgraded to 4.3.3 coming from 3.5.1 for a large TC with giga Zscript lines : just a few type mismatches which were corrected in 2 minutes. As far as I can tell no errors or strange things happening - all working as intended. That's quite an achievement guys!

Graf- did you try to do with GZDoom the same way you did with Blood GDX? Porting to java. And does that make sense?

Java adds significantly to the overhead - if anything Graf wants less of that in general.

It would not enhance the current experience, but it would be a significant time sink.

Just my 2 cents. The only Java port besides the GDX ones that got somewhere was Mocha Doom.

IIRC, Graf isn't fond of Java.
