This afternoon we now have more Wine-related news, and it's actually a new development release. Wine 1.1.37 is this new release and it carries a variety of fixes, but nothing to do with this Direct3D state tracker.

CodeWeavers had released CrossOver Games 8.0 back in September, but now this morning they have put out CrossOver Games 8.1. The main addition in CrossOver Games 8.1 is support for Left 4 Dead 2, the much-anticipated Windows game created by Valve Corporation that was actually just released yesterday as the sequel to Left 4 Dead. Though if you are a faithful Phoronix reader you would have known since last month that this new CrossOver Games release was coming soon and with support for Left 4 Dead 2. Besides the support for Left 4 Dead 2, CrossOver Games 8.1 carries some directory permission fixes for running World of Warcraft with Ubuntu 9.10 and a number of fixes for running Guild Wars.
