  • If only it where that simple. Service releases have been known to slightly change the way compilers build making an ABI difficult to maintain. I am working on making the Windows release build with MinGW as I don't like depending on a particular vers…
  • I'm all for maintaining an API, but not an ABI. It's not feasible. Different compliers, operating systems and even system running modes change the ABI. Personally, I think we should run as many betas as needed to do what we want to do before rele…
  • I seriously considered you may be dead. Welcome back.
  • I'm very happy with an 8 week cycle. I've got to test the recent changes on *NIX shortly before greenlighting beta5.
  • I will need to do a few minor checks/updates with the build scripts (I don't have much time at the moment to check other things.) As far as I can see, everything is running well so far - with the caveat that I have not tested multiplayer at all, and…
  • Melfice, it is, but the bot system DaniJ alludes to is a something that I'm specing up for post 1.9.0, as it will need extensive design work before it's integrated.
  • The file manager style should be more familar to users, so it might be better accepted. Shouldn't hurt to try it.
  • I took a quick look at what GCC 4.0.3 produces for beta4 and svn3435 for you. Using my default CFLAGS for an Ubuntu build of -march=i486 -mtune=pentium4 -fPIC -fgcse-after-reload -fomit-frame-pointer -ffast-math -frename-registers -ftracer -O2…
  • I eagerly await your massive svn commit
  • Looks useful. I will update the wiki building/running instructions as I get time.
  • Possibly. I shall play around with bash, wget and lynx to see if I can make a script to scape the wiki when I roll the tarballs.
  • OK. Changelogs should be locked down so only the devs can edit it. I will still need to recreate as a .txt file to keep the many *NIX distros happy, as well as an in tarball COMPILING.txt. I am happy to update the wiki documentation as I get time.
  • Currently the cmake system is known to generate MSVC6 and MSVC2005EE projects correctly. MSVC6 fails because it does not understand some things like "long long", and MSVC2005EE fails because of errors in the windows headers from the Windows 2003 PDK…
  • As of SVN 3427 all sytems are building and appear to be working under *NIX. Only minor cleanups needed, then I begin work on Win32.
  • Fixed the dynamic loader under *NIX, so, all I need to do is work out why libjhexen and libopenal are segfaulting with undefined symbols. Feel free to lend a hand.
  • More poking around has revealed that we have what appears to be two LoadPlugin routines. Could someone check engine/unix/src/dd_uinit.c and remove the one we don't use, so I know which one I should tinker with to get loading to work. libdsopenal …
  • OK, as of svn 3418 this is a list of known bugs observed with the cmake system. I haven't been able to run doomsday since beta4, so if any of these are known bugs please let me know. * libmaploader is not being loaded at all, so no glnodes get bu…
  • As of svn 3415 it is known to build and run on *NIX for the first time since the sources move. Some file case corrections had to be made, but that should not affect Windows or OSX. doomsday.pk3 is automatically generated at build time in this build …
  • Now looks in the correct place on *NIX. I adjusted engine/unix/src/sys_dylib.c to "do the right thing" on *NIX. All that needs to be done is to set up install routines, test build on Win32 + fixes if needed, and test build on OSX + fixes. We shou…
  • Whole system builds now on *NIX. Win32 and OSX still not tested. Need to resolve the sys_dylib issue before it play on *NIX.
  • I've begun trying to implement the build scripts using cmake. This supports "native" build systems eg XCode on OSX, Visiual Studio on Windows, and Makefiles on *NIX, as well as eg Cygwin/MinGW on Windows. It's much easier to read, maintain and ex…
  • No progess on the pk3's at this stage (lack of time). I've started work on the *NIX build system (need to commit that soon). It won't be too hard to whip the script up, but I'd really like to be able to build deng again first. (You have autotools on…
  • I'm currently swamped for time, so it may be a few days before I can begin commiting updates for the *NIX build system. I believe I can take care of auto-generating any .pk3 files in shell script on *NIX, Win32, and MacOS.
  • I'm happy to split the sources when you two are ready, but before that, I *really* need to tag each source with even a one line header stating license. Some of those will need to be re-examined after the split to see if they still contain Raven lice…

  • 2a. New Autotools build system for *NIX. If possible extend to OSX/Win32/ Re. #5. if no -iwad specified we should probally look for doom2.wad, then freedoom.wad and finally doom1.wad (sharewhare) in that order, before exiting with a no wad found …
  • I pinged the Gentoo guys via their security bug so a fixed version should end up there soon. Ubuntu packages were built for amd64 and i386, and have synced to all my mirrors by now.
  • Excellent. I'll blog soon with some guidelines for packagers, and begin documenting it. Thank you for helping with deng Layne, and I look forward to assisting you with packaging deng for fedora.
  • Layne, If you are willing to take on the role as fedora maintainer that is great. I would like you to co-ordinate that with myself, as there are *nix distro specifcs that are not in svn that we need to take care of.
  • I wonder if there's any way to write a platform-independent script for creating pk3s? I recall Python has Zip support. We could try using that...
    I'll take care of that with the new autotools system. I stuck a very very pre…
  • 1.9.0-beta4 source + md5sums have been released. As a convience to *NIX users, I rolled a tar.gz of snowberry from /tags/1.9.0-beta4.0 and placed it + md5ums as part of the beta4 release. I did a test download, made sure md5sums match, …
