    Sounds nice. I wonder if this company is big enough so when they'll be stopped by the GL_EXT_texture_compression_rgtc bug, AMD won't ignore them complaining.

      It would be nice if the VMWare folk could release their DX11 state tracker for Mesa

        Believe it when I see it.

        "In the coming months, CodeWeavers will have support for DirectX 11;
        interesting that there's zero mention of wine.

          Wine has its own release / merge criteria. CodeWeavers can write the code and submit it for inclusion into Wine, but then Wine has to accept it.

            It sounds absolutely retarded and a total waste of time. They've been implementing MS API the wrong way from the beginning. It's as if they decided to take the longest code path that they could possibly devise. They've been implementing MS API's in such a way that it looks like they intentionally try to make it the slowest and buggiest implementation that they possibly can. The wine project desperately needs forked and reimplemented so that MS API's become natively available and then wine should be nothing more than wrappers. That way wine can actually be what its acronym stands for. Right now as is it should be called "translate everything incorrectly at least 4 times before execution", or teil4be.

              Any reason to not trust to largest Wine contributors?

              One guy on reddit actually sent email to James Ramey and get an answer:
              Of course, CodeWeavers will submit the DX11 patches to Wine. The work is being done by Henri, and it's scheduled to be done sometime later this year (end of year most likely). He's been working on this for nearly 7 months, and he's making progress. Thank you for your inquiring. My best regards.

                That would be great, but it's still won't cover Intel hardware as it's based off Gallium. And Nvidia of course.

                  I swear the linux community has the memory of a goldfish.

                    Their fault. How many years has it been? If they've chosen to be left behind, then their choice.
