WINE now has support for multiple OpenGL pixel formats, improved support for color profiles, a number of window management fixes, and better full-screen support. As always, there are also a number of bug-fixes to be found in each WINE update. Head on over to WINE HQ for the announcement.

Cedega 6.1 Coming, Soon To Be Beta

In April of last year we had provided the first preview of Cedega 6.0 as well as a performance look at this software that's based upon WINE and is designed to allow you to get your gaming fix from Windows games on Linux. Cedega 6.0 had introduced support for such games as Battlefield 2142 and Need For Speed: Carbon. Under the hood Cedega 6.0 had a few highlights when it came to a new memory allocator, ATI fglrx improvements, support for new FBO extensions, dynamic CPU speed support, and much more. However, now it looks like that as we approach the one year anniversary of Cedega 6.0, that Cedega 6.1 isn't too far out on the horizon.
