Wine 1.1.30 was released two weeks ago with Direct3D 10 improvements, but Wine 1.1.31 is now out today and it too contains more Direct3D 10 work. Beyond enhancing the Direct3D 10.x support in Wine, which is critical for supporting some newer games, this release also carries improved monthcal control, performance improvements for DIB sections, several sound driver fixes, the start of ActiveX support in JScript, 16-bit dlls split off to separate modules, support for attachments in MAPI. Of course, there's also a number of bug-fixes in this new Wine release too.

It's great seeing the Direct3D 10 work continue as well as the start of ActiveX support in JavaScript. The release announcement for Wine 1.1.31 can be read at WineHQ.org.
