Seems we haven't updated about the Doomsday engine in awhile. Well, skyJake has updated Doomsday HQ with some musings on future development of the engine. The next version, 1.7.11, will be primarily for bug fixes, and 1.7.12 will implement some requested features. After the version 1.7 series fills out, more improvements are planned for 1.8. Then comes the most major developments and changes in version 2.0.
