Last week CodeWeavers had released CrossOver Games, which is a more frequently updated version of their CrossOver Office software and is optimized for use with Windows games. If you're still using WINE directly, however, you'll be pleased to know that a new release is out today with a number of changes. WINE 0.9.59 has improved support for Microsoft's .NET framework, improved service handling through a separate services.exe process, support for ATI's fragment shader, improved support for HTTP proxies, window management fixes, and pre-compiled fonts can now be found in the WINE source tree. In addition, there are also a number of bug fixes. Head on over to Wine HQ for the full change-log and download links.

If you missed the earlier announcement, WINE 1.0 will be released this June or July.
