The latest bi-weekly Wine development release is now available and it brings with it some noteworthy changes.

Wine 1.7.12 is today's new development release and it unfortunately doesn't deliver on the Direct3D command stream improvements or Wine gaming performance improvements, but it does have some other good work that's landed.

Wine 1.7.12 has initial support for Microsoft Windows Media Player interfaces, more Task Scheduler support, C++ run=time fixes, more work on the Windows 8 API set support, and close to 100 bug-fixes. In total there's 89 bugs that have been officially closed by Wine 1.7.12.
