SLADE v220.127.116.11 Released, WinXP Support Returns (For Now)
Another minor bugfix release for 3.1.1 is here, as usual you can see the changes over at the change log, and can download it at the downloads page.
On Windows XP Support
Since v18.104.22.168, SLADE has not run on Windows XP, which was due to the crash report sending feature introduced in that version. With v22.214.171.124 I have provided a Windows XP build that disables this feature, so it should run again.
Going forward, if another issue preventing SLADE from running on Windows XP crops up, I will not be implementing another workaround to correct it and at that point SLADE will no longer officially support Windows XP.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep XP compatibility while moving forward with modern development tools and libraries, not to mention the OS is no longer supported by Microsoft itself.
Now that a new stable release is out, I plan to get the first beta for 3.1.2 out fairly soon, which should include some kind of ZScript support.
As it's been so long since 3.1.1 and the planned features for 3.1.2 aren't even half done yet, I think some of the map editing features planned for it will need to be pushed back, unfortunately. There are already other good map editors around but not much else for resource editing, so I will likely be focusing on that side of SLADE for the next few versions at least.
Of course, that doesn't mean the map editor will be neglected - often new features are implemented depending on what I feel like doing at the time rather than what I think is most important, SLADE is a hobby project after all =P
SLADE v126.96.36.199 Released
Here's another minor release, with mostly bug fixes - including a pretty bad one on macOS. For a full list of changes see here.
SLADE v188.8.131.52 Released
Another release of 3.1.1 is out, with the usual minor improvements and bug fixes. The OSX build in particular received various improvements in addition to moving to wxWidgets 3.1.0, which should improve some things on retina displays and resolve a bunch of issues there.
For a full list of changes in 184.108.40.206, see here.
SLADE v220.127.116.11 Released
A new version of SLADE is up with a bunch of fixes over 18.104.22.168, which can be seen here. I wasn't planning on releasing this just yet, but Microsoft decided to move the visual studio runtimes download location which broke the installer. The installer for this version should work properly again, as I've changed it to download the runtimes from the SLADE website, rather than Microsoft.
So Many 1s, Again (SLADE v22.214.171.124 Released)
Hot on the heels of 3.1.1 comes 126.96.36.199, with quite a few bug fixes, including some especially major ones - SLADE can actually open maps with slopes in them without crashing now (oops). The release also hopefully resolves some long standing issues with saving zip files and entry data becoming messed up, among various other things which can be viewed here.
In other news, 3.1.2 is still coming along, recently I've been looking at some improvements to the text editor, like code folding, an improved find+replace bar and some better customisation options like the ability to set a global default font for the text editor. Also, eevee has began to make some progress implementing 3d floors preview in 3d mode, which is also planned for 3.1.2.
SLADE v3.1.1 Released
And it's time for the official release of SLADE v3.1.1. For a full list of changes since 188.8.131.52 see here. The most notable new features are slopes support in the map editor 3d mode, entry list sorting, and a new grid view/editor for various data entry types.
Some work on 3.1.2 is already underway, including the ability to open entries in external editors (eg. graphics in paint), so look forward to that in the first beta of 3.1.2, whenever that is.
Two 1s and Two 3s
It's beta time again, this time the 3rd beta of 3.1.1. Now that everything for 3.1.1 is completed, this will be the last beta before release, which should be within the next month or so. Hopefully.
The second beta release of 3.1.1 is up, with a bunch of improvements and fixes over the last one. The enhanced music/audio playback stuff is back from older drd builds as well.
As per usual, check the GitHub release page for more details on what has changed since beta 1.
The last thing I'm planning for 3.1.1 is undo/redo in the texture editor (which is mostly done), once that is in it'll just be a matter of more testing and bug fixes before 3.1.1 final is released, which should hopefully be early next year.
So Many 1s (3.1.1 Beta 1 Released)
As promised last post, the first beta build of SLADE 3.1.1 is released. There are a few major new features in this release, including slopes support in 3d mode, entry list sorting, a generic data view for various entry types, and more. For a full list of changes, as per usual they can be found on the GitHub release page.
One feature that some may notice is missing, if they have been using the builds from DRDTeam, is the advanced music/audio panel. This feature will be added (back) in a future beta release of 3.1.1.
So head over to the downloads page and try out the beta, if you are so inclined.
SLADE 184.108.40.206 Released
Yet another 3.1.0 release, hopefully (again) the last. I'm planning on releasing the first beta version of 3.1.1 soon, so look out for that as well.
As per usual, the release notes can be found at the GitHub Release Page
