After 2.5 years, there's finally a new release of ZDoom and a new ACC to go with it. Visit the download page to get them. There have been significant changes to ZDoom over the years, including:

Mac OS X
The OS X version of ZDoom now features a native Cocoa back end that significantly increases performance, in many case doubling frame rates, and is also more stable than the previous version.

Linux now uses SDL2 which can produce less frame jitter with high frame rates, has some vsync support, and fullscreen is now a "desktop fullscreen" mode.

ZDoom already worked great on Windows, so nothing has changed here.

Everything else
A fairly complete list of changes since 2.7.1 is available on the wiki. I'll probably pick out some highlights to list here eventually. Maybe. Or just read the comments for this post, since other people already did it.

ZDBSP 1.18.1: Minor bugfix release

ZDBSP has received a small bug fix and is now at version 1.18.1. This corrects a problem in earlier versions that could potentially create invalid nodes with maps that have more than 65535 lines or with maps that use the new node format introduced in ZDBSP 1.18.

ZDBSP 1.18 is now available. This version introduces a new node format for better compatibility with UDMF maps that have vertices with fractional coordinates.

ACC 1.53

ACC 1.53 is now available and supports the latest features of ZDoom 2.6, such as scripts with four parameters, waiting on named scripts, and some very minor bug fixes.

In addition, the -h command line option no longer silently promotes non-Hexen features to the ZDoom script format. You now get an error when you try to use ZDoom-features in Hexen-compatible mode.

I would have put this up with ZDoom 2.6.0, but it slipped my mind. Sorry about that.
