RIP SoftPoly (though I doubt anyone was still using it)
I also laughed at "removed some redundant chaaracters". Please tell me you did this on purpose :P
I really like the new mirror tags, both have much potential in atmospheric/horror wads.

I'd really like to contribute and participate in the survey, but I am in the middle of a couple of playthroughs and don't want to update to the new version until I finish them. How long do you expect the survey will run for?
On the subject of saves the per-IWAD folder seems like a very nice extension, since I guess this now means that the IWADs won't interfere with each others' autosaves anymore.

I'd like to echo Enjay in extending a big thank you for keeping this port going and updated for so many years.

Here's the beauty of a portable-capable app like GZDoom: you can install a second copy of it in another location and not have to touch your in-place install.

Fortunately, the '-config' command line parameter is still there: I have several .ini depending of which mod I'm runing, loaded through the '[Global.Autoload]' section together with additional dedicated settings. I do hope this system will stay.

They were redundant because an internal mapping to another character with the identical graphic exists, so yes, it was on purpose.

I think they meant the typo in "chaaracters", which has an extra/redundant a.

Why is the build process doing this? I'm confused, it does this even with Ninja or Unix Makefiles... it somehow does this even if I remove write permissions to those files, and it somehow is also able to do this if I change ownership of those files to root and disable write permission???
Commit the changes it's made during the compilation process and send a PR to GZDoom for merging. Say that a Raze dev asked you to do so. I had to do the same thing in Raze, no idea why.

Do you have clang-format installed? If so, it's probably caused by this mess in DiscordRPC CMake file.

I always copy paste inside of ini file of older version to newest version for make my settings instantly ready for new version. Is it a healthy way or can break some stuff in new versions?
Also When you play game as windowed ( not in main menu),you cant use right top icons of window with 4.9.0,it makes game window freeze. Is it a bug or purposely done?

If you carry over your old INI GZDoom will ask you how you want to use it. So you should be able to continue with your old config.
Just keep in mind that if you choose the User folder as storage it will become your global config for all GZDoom installations.
If you do not want that, use 'portable' and you can continue as before, just with a differently named INI.

Yeah, I have Clang installed and actively use it more than GCC. Does that section of the CMake file just need to get completely removed or is there some command line argument that needs to be passed to clang-format?

That idiocy needs to be removed. Enforcing coding style like this is just stupid.

I don't think it does any good having that there so I'll just remove it.

Well thank goodness that mystery is finally solved, I probably should have poked around with the CMakeLists myself but I'm not much of a coder so I probably wouldn't of understood what I was looking at or trying to find.

Thanks for the updates - quite a number of changes. Will download it here soon.

FYI that the date shown on the downloads page for 4.9.0 is shown incorrectly as 2022-07-04
