Eureka DOOM Editor
Eureka is a cross-platform map editor for the classic DOOM games. The supported operating systems are Linux (and other Unix-likes), Windows and MacOS X.
See the About page for more information and screenshots
The current version is 1.07 -- grab it on the
page on SourceForge.
I have just released version 1.07 of Eureka.
Windows users should note that there is no longer an installer, you can just download the win32 binary package, unzip it somewhere and run the Eureka executable (making a link in the Start menu should work too). For Linux users, there is no longer a pre-built binary, you will need to either build from source, or run the Windows package in Wine.
Major changes in this release:
Plus numerous other enhancements and bug fixes. See here for all the changes: Changes107
It was remiss of me to not make a news post about this earlier (much, much earlier...), but thanks to Fabian Greffrath there is now an official Debian package for Eureka!
It is a real honor for me to have my software become part of Debian. Thanks again Fabian.
Version 1.00 of Eureka is now available for download. There have been a lot of changes in this release and numerous bugs fixed, as well some new features. The most significant changes are:

Thanks again to printz for creating the MacOS X package.
Now that this release is out, I plan to stop coding for a while and work primarily on the sorely-lacking documentation for Eureka. I hope you enjoy this release.
For the last week or two I have been working on improving the look of this website, especially to incorporate an awesome logo which Jason R Johnston sent to me earlier this year. Many thanks Jason!
I'm excited to announce that Eureka is now available for Windows! You can find an installer on the download page. The installer is very bare-bones at the moment, since I'm still climbing that learning curve, but it will add Eureka as a program to the Start menu. So far it has been tested on Windows XP and Windows Vista, it should work on Windows 7 too, but I don't know whether Windows 95 or 98 are going to work (reports welcome, as always).
Other improvements include:
Plus several bug fixes. The complete list of changes is here: Changes095
Eureka 0.88c is a small update to the 0.88 release, which mainly fixes a few bugs, but it also adds a new port definition. The changes are:
I have also made a Debian package for i386 architecture (32-bit machines). This is designed for the Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" distribution, but hopefully will work on other OSes too (Ubuntu, Arch, Mint, etc...). This is the first time I have made a debian package, and I welcome reports on whether or not it worked OK on your system.
Just in time for Chrissy, here is another Eureka!
Plus numerous smaller features and a few bug fixes too. The full list of changes can be found here: Changes088
I'm really stoked to announce that, thanks to printz, there is now a MacOS X port of Eureka! It features a very nifty setup dialog for selecting the IWAD, the wad and map to edit, any resource wads, and the port (engine). You can even control various editor settings there.
This is available from the Download page.
This release is dedicated to Dragonsbrethren (from the DW forums), who provided some really helpful feedback. Many of the improvements in the release are a response to those comments. I'm grateful for all the other feedback too :)
