ZDoom is a source port, originally based on ATB Doom and NTDOOM. It has since added nearly full support for Boom, Heretic, and Hexen, and has made several steps recently to add support for Strife as well (Versions 2.0.90 and above have full support, but possibly some bugs). It has added many additional features, including slopes, uncapped fps (though the cap can be turned back on from the console), and z-clipping. The source code is maintained by Randy Heit. Currently the project is in beta testing, and the most recent version is Template:Latest ZDoom.
