- Update to new upstream release 2.1.1
* Graphics optimizations: While games still use the classic
renderer like in 2.0, all graphics are now drawn using OpenGL
3.3. This enables optimizations for more efficient rendering
of the player view, menus, text, and the Doomsday UI.
* UI improvements: The Doomsday UI look and feel has been
refreshed. The game library is now more flexible and powerful
with further game customization settings and view options.
* Multiplayer convenience: Clients will automatically download
missing PWADs from the server before joining the game.

- Add doomsday-libs.diff, doomsday-notime.diff
* Thu Apr 20 2017 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to new upstream release 2.0
* The Home Screen replaces the front-end app. The Python-based
Snowberry launcher application was created in 2005 and has been
used for starting Doomsday ever since. In version 2.0, the
launcher is no longer needed because Doomsday's Home Screen
(previously called "ring zero") replaces its functionality.
* Built-in support for packages. One of the launcher's key features
was add-on management. This is now also part of Doomsday itself
in the form of packages. Anything that Doomsday can load ? WADs,
resource packs, 3D models, etc. ? is now handled via the same
package management system. This enables Doomsday to track which
files are in use in saved games and multiplayer games, and makes
it possible to automatically ensure that the correct files are
loaded at any given time.
* New 3D model renderer. Doomsday's graphics code is undergoing a
transition to a newer version of OpenGL, namely "OpenGL3/4 Core
Profile"). Certain parts like the engine UI have already
completed this transition, however the game renderer itself has
not. In version 2.0, the new version of the 3D model renderer has
reached a state where it is useful for actual gameplay. This new
renderer supports FBX and MD5 models (among other formats),
skeletal animation, GLSL shaders, and Doomsday Script.

- Update to new upstream release 1.15.8
* Custom episodes. Episode (DED) definitions specify the structure of
game episodes (including hubs) enabling entirely new episodes and
modifying the originals.
* MAPINFO support. MAPINFO (Hexen) definitions are now supported in
Doom and Heretic, as well as Hexen. Note that, presently, only the
Hexen dialect of MAPINFO is supported (ZDoom uses its own MAPINFO
* Adjustable pixel density. If your GPU is on the slower side, you
can improve performance by reducing game view resolution. The rest
of the UI remains sharp since the display mode is not changed. As a
bonus, you can also get a nice nostalgic aesthetic similar to the
original Doom on a CRT display.
- If you get a blank screen instead of the game title screen
after selecting the IWAD to play, you may need to reset your

rendering modes, including anaglyph, side-by-side, parallel and
