SLADE v3.1.2 Beta 2 Released
Tue, Jun 06 2017
Not a whole lot of changes since beta 1, though some fairly major bugs have been fixed. See the changes below:
First v.3.1.2 Beta Released
Wed, May 24 2017
Long long overdue, finally the first beta version of SLADE 3.1.2 is released. I had wanted to get a bit more done before releasing this (namely proper ZScript support), however that was proving much more complicated than I anticipated, so it's on hold for now.
3.1.2 has seen lots of changes over 3.1.1, which you can see a (somewhat condensed) list below:
Note that this version also has many under-the-hood changes which could potentially have caused some bugs to creep in, so be warned that some things may be broken that were fine before. Please report any issues on the issue tracker (or alternatively SLADE Discord or the ZDoom forums thread if you prefer).
I hope (yeah I know I keep saying this stuff :P) to have more rapid releases from now on, more than a year between major versions is too long. Also expect more rapid/minor beta releases as bugs are fixed etc before the final 3.1.2 release.
SLADE v126.96.36.199 Released, WinXP Support Returns (For Now)
Wed, Jan 18 2017
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 v188.8.131.52, SLADE has not run on Windows XP, which was due to the crash report sending feature introduced in that version. With v184.108.40.206 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 v220.127.116.11 Released
Mon, Sep 26 2016
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 v18.104.22.168 Released
Tue, Jul 26 2016
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 22.214.171.124, see here.
