Odamex 10.5.0 Released
« on: May 17, 2024, 17:15:36 »
Odamex 10.5.0

This is a minor release with mostly quality of life fixes. The client has seen a number of useful updates. One of the more notable additions in 10.5.0, contributor loopfz improved the in-game wad downloader so that it can now download files with mixed case file names. That means server admins no longer have to host wads that are either all upper case or lower case. This will be incredibly useful for server admins looking to host servers with many wads.

Contributor ceski has improved controller support by improving analog stick deadzones, as well as flushing unused game controller events. Contributor chewi has improved our general codebase by correcting some aliasing errors in multiple areas of the code, along with other general code fixes. Contributor matoro has also helped update our CMake configuration.

Also, a shout out to KBlair for improving our demo testing suite, which helps us continue to strive toward full vanilla Doom compatibility. Also there were some other contributions in this release from various users, you can see all contributors in the full patch notes linked down below. Odamex is a community driven effort, and we appreciate anyone that submits code or changes to help improve Odamex.

The Odamex 10.5.0 client is fully compatible with 10.0.0, 10.1.0, 10.2.0, 10.3.0, and 10.4.0 servers, so you can join any 10.x server. We do recommend all server hosts update to 10.5.0 to have the most up-to-date stable release of Odamex for your players to enjoy.

The official release changelog can be viewed here.
