The release of WINE 1.1.7 two weeks ago marked their initial work on implementing Direct3D 10 support, but still in a very early form. WINE 1.1.8 has now been released and while doesn't contain anything quite as exciting, there are a few interesting points.

WINE 1.1.8 features substantial parts of inetcomm being implemented to provide Microsoft Outlook support, improved crypt32 support, memory management improvements, and theming support for buttons. Like nearly all WINE releases, WINE 1.1.8 also contains other bug-fixes too.

The release announcement for WINE 1.1.8 can be read at WINE HQ.
