The 1.15.5 stable build wasn’t very successful. This is the problem with an evolving build environment: operating system, library, and toolchain upgrades eventually break the older code. Continue reading Maintenance needed
Today I added support for OS X HiDPI resolutions. It turned out to be relatively straightforward, with Qt 5 already doing most of the work for us. Doomsday’s default UI style package was easy to adapt for HiDPI, with a couple of extra factors applied to UI metrics and font sizes. It helped that we had already prepared suitably high-resolution versions of the icons and other graphics used in the revised UI.

Xcode is growing on me. Especially Xcode 6 on Yosemite is looking fantastic. Qt Creator is a very capable editor, however I plan to make another effort to write a generator script for a “native” Doomsday Xcode project. A sensible goal would be to produce a Snowberry-free build using Qt 5.3.
