With the latest bi-weekly development snapshot of Wine, the v1.3.4 release brings a variety of noteworthy changes.

New to Wine 1.3.4 is support for right-to-left mirrored windows, Winelib now supporting the ARM architecture, a new taskkill.exe built-in application, the Inetcpl control panel being fleshed out, AcceptEx has been implemented, and there's improved security checks for SSL connections. There's also the usual translation updates and bug-fixes. The Wine library now supporting the ARM architecture is good for those interested in wanting to run Windows applications on your ARM-based netbooks or other mobile-focused devices.

This Wine release does not integrate any support for the recent Direct3D 10/11 state tracker in Gallium3D although there are the Wine DLLs living in Mesa.

The Wine 1.3.4 release announcement can be found at WineHQ.org.
