ZDoom 2.6.0 is now released, after not having an official release since 2010. Get it here. A list of new features can be found here, which includes swanky things like 3D floors and voxels.

Does this mean it will eventually render gzdoom is useless?

Not if you like the OpenGL renderer and all it entails.

Hopefully an actual release of svn code will inspire the brutal doom author to fix the torch sounds. http://www.doomworld.com/vb/post/1060254

Congrats to the ZDoom devs on pulling out of the development nosedive and getting this release out. Sounds like there are some interesting new features too.

That secret hint system is a great idea, I hope it will be picked up by prboom+.

Lol I didn't noticed that ZDoom wasn't updated for 2 years...I always prefer GZDoom and fortunately, it was updated more often.

As long as ZDoom remains with features like y-shearing when looking up or down, no.

GZDoom got a new release as well. Get it here. The GZDoom website hasn't yet been updated to reflect this though, apparently due to some technical difficulties with Graf Zahl's ISP.

Heh, I remember 2.5 was released around when I first started lurking on Doomworld.

Anyways, nice to see that ZDoom won't be stuck on the same version for all eternity...

EDIT:- Thanks Janizdreg for GZdoom version 2.6.0 but the website still not updated since 2010... Strange!

There is a floating decapitated bunny head on the menu. Any reason for that?

That would be the mouse cursor used when running a Doom game in it. ;)

Glad to see there is finally a new, stable release.

If you don't like it, you can change it. Use the mouse options and change the cursor here. Personally I like "Simple arrow".

Ha. I didn't even bother moving the mouse to see that it was a cursor. I use the keyboard when moving around on the menu, so I thought it was some glitch or something. I'll leave it as is I think.

I see the bunny hates me. I use the menu and if my mouse moves a bit, the selection moves up to the bunny head. heh. how about a little delay between the keyboard presses and the bunny head taking focus?

I personally went back to disabling the mouse for menus in the aforementioned Mouse settings. I thought about setting it to "Chex", but I didn't.

Change the Enable mouse in menu setting to "Touchscreen-like" so that selection isn't changed by the cursor moving over something, or "No" to disable it altogether.

Hmm... Speaking of that, is someone actually planning to port ZDoom to touchscreen devices?

There is still polymost (console: r_polymost 1), though that seems to be about it w.r.t. progress.

The Heretic one actually looks like a mouse pointer arrow. That is great work.

Which, IIRC, Randy has proclaimed will never be finished.
