    What I meant and it is a bit of a shame I need to explain this in such great detail is that DX9 was the go-to DX version for a really, really long time. DX10 never took off, most companies simply skipped/ignored it and DX11 has already been replaced, by DX12. And with DX12 being such a dramatically different API from previous DX versions, I suspect 11 will be skipped just as much as DX10 was.
    With regards to its Win 10 exclusivity -- That is a very sad thing indeed, I can't help but agree with you there. Win 10 is a dreadful monstrosity indeed. Which does nothing to dissuade the masses from purchasing it. So, you will see a moment in time when most desktop PCs are in fact running a DX12 enabled OS. Particularly with the lifecycle of its immediate predecessors, 7, 8 and 8.1 being so much shorter than Win XP. Mainstream support for 8.1 is ending in 2018. By that time, people will be forced to move to Win 10 (or later); if they're sticking with Windows at all, obviously.

    The true reason to focus on DX12 is that DX12 is the bigger leap forward; DX12 is drastically different from previous DX versions. However, this in turn probably also makes it a lot harder to implement.

    Ultimately though, I think we'll see DX12 becoming the new DX9; 9 was the mainstay and the fallback for a long, long, long time.

    Not sure if DX11 is worth the work. Maybe they should go from dx9 directly to dx12.

    Wine is cool, I use it everyday for Photoshop CS6 with Playonlinux.

    Great work... Hurrah for Wine... :-)

    From following the development cycle of Wine for quite a while now... Features like DirectX 10.x / 11 will definitely feature in a major release version (e.g. 1.10). There's a lot of work to be done still - to support these API's fully...

    Yes, that is what I wrote. The 2nd point that is. As far as the first point -- details. But, good to know they're going more traditional now, with odd numbered dev releases and even numbered mainline releases.

    From what I understand, the point really is to limit it to yearly releases as far as features go. Sure, there might be point releases to deal with bugfixes but I wouldn't count on a hypothetical 1.8.10 completing the DX11 implementation. That'll probably not see the light of day before 1.9rc1, if even then.

    no. the next release will be either 1.10 or 2. And 1.9 release are dev release, so are all 1.7 only "dev" release. and there won't be a 1.9rc1 ever

    And there won't be new features in any 1.8 point release, period.

    I am happy to see Wine move a long. It has come a far way since I started using it.
