Two weeks ago with WINE 0.9.56 we were greeted with proper handling of OpenGL/Direct3D windows with menu bars, stubs for all the d3dx9_xx DLLs, several graphics optimizations, and many installer fixes, for those that use WINE to run Windows programs on Linux. While the change-log this time around isn't as interesting, WINE 0.9.57 is now out with a couple of improvements. WINE now has support for multiple OpenGL pixel formats, improved support for color profiles, a number of window management fixes, and better full-screen support. As always, there are also a number of bug-fixes to be found in each WINE update. Head on over to WINE HQ for the announcement.
