- Support for installation rollbacks in MSI.
- 8- and 16-bit bitmap formats in the DIB engine.
- Fixes in the XInput2 mouse support.
- Better support for text shaping in Uniscribe.
- Improvements to the Item common dialog.
- More MSVC runtime functions.
- Various bug fixes.

The full change-log and download links for the Wine 1.3.21 release are available, as always, from WineHQ.org.
