Since the release of WINE 1.1.16
two weeks ago, the open-source developers have been working on joystick support for Mac OS X, implementing iphlpapi on Solaris, a number of 64-bit improvements, the obsolete LinuxThreads support has been dropped, and Windows regression test fixes. These changes plus the usual round of bug-fixes has now gone on to form the WINE 1.1.17 release.
The announcement of WINE 1.1.17 can be found at WineHQ.org
with a complete listing of all the changes. In related news, earlier this week it was shared by CodeWeavers
, a corporate backer of the WINE project, that they will be striving for DirectX 10.0 support
and a new GUI in their WINE-based software this year.
