Added two weeks ago in WINE 1.1.4 was improved WinHTTP support and additional JavaScript support for supporting Google Chrome on Linux through WINE along with additional changes and bug-fixes. With the just-released WINE 1.1.5 release the JavaScript work continues with what is described as a "substantial JavaScript implementation." Additionally, there is partial support for layered windows, the ability to have Unicode file export with the registry editor, proper exception handling in widl-generated code, and a-synchronous requests and cookies support in WinHTTP. As always, there is also a variety of bug-fixes that have been bundled into this bi-weekly development release. The release announcement can be read at WINE HQ.
