SourceMod 1.11 Now Stable Jul 02, 2022 22:19
It's been cooking for long enough, so SourceMod 1.11 is now, finally declared stable. A new release was overdue, so this post includes an unusually long list of changes. We've highlighted some changes at the top and included a detailed list of individual changes below. Many thanks to Peace-Maker for aggregating the release notes!

Highlights

  • Include DHooks2 as first-party extension.
  • New OnPlayerRunCmdPre forward to get raw values before other plugins mess with them.
  • New OnNotifyPluginUnloaded() forward for child plugin resource management.
  • Gamedata files are automatically reparsed on load if they have changed since the last load.
  • Signature lookups are done on the unchanged binary in memory. No need to wildcard the first bytes if the function gets detoured anymore!
  • A2S_RULES query fix for CS:GO allowing to query public convar values like in all other games.
  • New forwards when clients use voice chat.
  • Add frequently used SDK calls like LookupEntityAttachment and SetEntityCollisionGroup.
  • PostgreSQL database driver.
  • Updated GeoIP extension to use newer database format.
  • Rewrite of the SourcePawn parser to separate it from code generation in the compiler to allow for further improvement of the language. See here what's changed and might need touching for your plugin to compile on 1.11.
  • Various stability and documentation improvements.


Below is a detailed list of changes since the last release. There were a plethora of little typo fixes and documentation improvements, which aren't listed individually to keep the already long list shorter, but are appreciated anyways.

SourcePawn changes
SourcePawn 1.11 contains a major rewrite of the compiler. This rewrite is intended to allow rapid feature development and improve the health and stability of the language. It fixes many bugs, and as a result, old programs may not compile. Programs compiled with an older compiler continue to run fine.

Notably, SourcePawn 1.11 does not hide errors in unused functions anymore. If a stock is unused, and has errors, the errors should be fixed or the stock should be removed.

More common errors for 1.11 upgrades are listed in a separate post including details how to fix them.

CS:GO and moving forward (Plugin developer input) Aug 26, 2017 09:48
Hello,

So as you may have noticed in the last CS:GO update it took us much longer to fix SourceMod than normal so I'll give a brief view of what happened. CS:GO code on launch had much of the same code as CS:S making it really easy to port the cstrike extension over to CS:GO and make plugins for one work for both for the most part but this has changed heavily over the years as they strip old code out. What happened in the last update is they moved away from weaponids and removed item script files and merged everything into items.games. In doing so they removed functions SM used or are no longer used in the same way (or inlined on windows). This caused our update time to take much longer due to having to find ways to replicate the previous functions/forwards.

When the extension was finally finished we considered it a temporary fix since it isn't very maintainable. Looking forward we want to phase out/remove WeaponID's for CS:GO and switch to item definition indexes. However, doing this will cause some minor breakage/change in behavior for old plugins.

So here is the approach currently being discussed. The id's for the weapons that are currently in the enum will be mapped to itemdefs so internally we will use itemdefs but plugins will see it as the old id's. Anything currently not in the weapon ids enum will use the itemdef index. This will require us to update the include with new itemdef indexes when they are added thus plugin recompiling if they want to use the new values.

This change will break certain weapons as well, currently the extension does some assumptions for weapons that aren't default (cz75a, usp-s, m4a1-s, revolver). Currently it passes the weaponid for the item that it replaces. However, in the case of the cz75a this has been broken forever due to them having different default items on CT/T. So those weapons will be added to the enum separately.

So this thread is for plugin developers to provide input on the solution (perhaps a better one) and also suggestion for new natives that they may want WITHIN REASON. The natives for the most part should be ones that interact with the new CCSWeaponData class or CEconItem(View/Definition). I have final say if they are added or not.
