The latest bi-weekly Wine development release just happened.

Wine 1.7.17 is today's Wine update but sadly doesn't have the Direct3D command stream patches nor any major work on Wine's DirectX Video Acceleration support. The notable items for the past two weeks just include bug-fixes, more implementations of the task scheduler, and the C run-time is made more compatible by sharing of source files. OS X users also have joystick fixes.

- More implementations for the Task Scheduler.
- C runtime made more compatible by sharing source files.
- Fixes in the Mac OS X joystick support.
- Various bug fixes.

There's 89 bug-fixes found in Wine 1.7.17 with the full list of changes being available via the project's WineHQ.org web-site.
