* The Release *

Odamex 0.8.1 has officially been released! The new version of Odamex has numerous bug fixes, as well as a handful of new features! Make sure to scroll down to check out the full changelog. Huge credit to AlexMax, Ch0wW, Dr. Sean, Hekksy, Hobomaster, HyperEye, Manc, and Nautilus for all of their hard work and contributions that made this release possible.

Most of the changelog can be found below:

* Crash Dump Generator *

Despite all of the hard work that our developers put into Odamex, there can always be a bug hiding around the corner. One of the most frustrating types of bugs is one that causes Odamex to "hard crash" and shut the program. If you experience this on Windows, Odamex will now generate a crash dump file (ending in .dmp) in your Odamex directory. If this happens, you can upload that crash dump and an explanation of what happened to our bug tracker (https://odamex.net/bugs/). Providing us access to this dump allows our developers to quickly uncover information regarding the crash and resolve the bug. Please create an account and provide information with your crash dump file if you experience a crash!

* Other Cool Things *

A huge shout out to Rude, who has developed plasmabump (http://plasmabump.com). Plasmabump is new hub for classic Doom deathmatch powered by Odamex. Official plasmabump servers track match data and use it to generate an ELO ladder, a stat-tracking system, and more. Head on over to the plasmabump site and, more importantly, hop into a plasmabump server today to stake your claim as a Doom deathmatch pro!

Also, please join us on the official Odamex Discord (https://discord.gg/aMUzcZE) to chat with other players, organize games, and track development of the project!
