    What's next for Wine?
    I can imagine Vulkan 1.2 support.
    Does it have DirectX 12 support?

      I want to see to some gaming charts to see how the FPS/performance of some games are from Wine 5.0 to 4.0 now.... lol that probably isnt practical but I want it.

        The day I can run Photoshop 21.0.2 or any future recent versions on Wine without issues is the day I will say: "Wow Wine has come a long way in improvement."

          I'd like to see Wayland support to avoid the XWayland performance penalty.

            Wine made huge improvements this year! And since Proton and Steam Play it is nice to use.

            I wish that at least for windows without a title bar Wayland support would be provided.

              Windows Anti-cheat support would be a killer feature.

                There is no such thing as an XWayland performance penalty.

                  It'll never happen. Never ever. Wayland is broken by design and can't handle the Windows GUI model.

                    It's true that it is by design. It's just not broken - it's a modern design. Similarly how Vulkan did not have transform feedback for a long time and only added it as a optional extension (and it remains to be seen if that was a wise decission). Compatibility to the stone age, with bad design decisions from decades ago, just so some proprietary apps can still run unchanged/unfixed, is not always a good idea.
