Following Wine's monumental 1.2 release last month that carried more than 23,000+ changes, the second bi-weekly development snapshot of Wine 1.3 is now available.

The first Wine 1.3 release began to rework the user-interface for the built-in Internet Explorer, supported cross-process OLE drag and drop, and began to work on some other underlying changes and bug-fixes. The changes for Wine 1.3.1 are also scattered throughout.

The official release announcement for Wine 1.3.1 as found over at WineHQ.org lists the following improvements made in the last two weeks.

- Support for drag & drop between X11 and OLE.
- New ipconfig.exe builtin tool.
- Support for favorites in builtin Internet Explorer.
- Beginnings of a shell Explorer control.
- A number of DirectDraw code cleanups.
- Improvements to the calendar control.
- Various bug fixes.

Of course, this is just the start of changes to come with there likely to be dozens more bi-weekly development snapshots before Wine 1.4 is eventually released.
