  • printf-style string formatting function for ZScript.
  • dynamic arrays for ZScript.
  • more access to map data from ZScript.
  • user definable actor properties.
  • separation of scripts into UI and Play parts to have better access control

Other:
  • added GetActorFloorTexture and GetActorFloorTerrain ACS functions.
  • added new PRINTNAME_ constants for retrieving next and secret next level in ACS.
  • per-sector settable fog density.
  • fixed handling of sector action things with special trigger semantics.

  • and many more smaller additions and fixes.

It's under Dynamic Lights, and it's only going to work in QZDoom until GZDoom's next major release.
