Concerning the issue of update frequency, why not implement an automatic updater like Catastrophe suggested?

If anybody volunteers to write an auto updater that works on Windows, Linux and OS X, and can handle clients and severs, please go ahead. It would be wonderful to have such a thing, but implementing it is a lot of work and I'd personally rather spend the necessary time and effort on Zandronum itself.

What if it was a feature of Doomseeker instead? It already can install testing releases automatically, why not stable versions too?

I think Doomseeker could handle the clients, but not the servers.

I feel like that would be best served by creating yum/deb repositories, that way you can dnf or aptitude updates onto your system.

Alternatively, it would be nice to have a static place on the website where you curl a text file with the latest stable version number, and if it's new, a static place where you can curl the latest server binary.

Other than that, as a server host, I certainly wouldn't want any sort of automatic update built into the binary itself.

What happens if you don't play Zandronum? There is no multiplayer in (G)ZDoom.

I think that there is multiplayer in (G)ZDoom, but it is really clumsy and awkward.
