    New Nine doesn't work with radeon drivers, because radeon drivers miss DRI3, and since recently Nine is based on DRI3 and does not work with DRI2 :-(

    So until someone implements DRI3 for radeon it's useless... There is a patch from iXit, but I've tried it and it's very buggy. Basically unusable.

    Its Linux Only, one one driver can utilize is (the FOSS-Nvidia driver is from my POV a joke and never worked for me). So they decide still to write against Nvidia GL *scnr*

    I dont have a problem that they prefer the OpenGL Wrapper but i don't understand why they block the option.

    Umm, okay? I wasn't aware that this is Linux only. I thought mesa in general runs on all sorts of unixoid OS. But even if, they could make it a possible option. So users can decide during compiletime or by a config file to use this state tracker or not.

    IMO wine devs are wrong with their "all or nothing" point of view. They should do best thing possible without chasing pointless perfectionism which does more harm than good.

    I am equally excited with bug fixes as well as new features, normally.
    But the best features are useless when they don't work.

    Anyway, does anybody know why the WINE devs don't use this state tracker?

    Before getting too excited, the 53 patches published by Axel on Wednesday mostly equate to bug-fixes.
    I usually am more excited with better reliability than half baked new features.
