WINE --
It's time for another bi-weekly development release of Wine, but if you're looking forward to the Direct3D Command Stream work, better D3D10/D3D11 support, or any integration of Gallium3D Nine support, you'll be sadly disappointed.

On the aforementioned features, there isn't anything new to report with regard to their completion or upstreaming. While the upcoming Mesa 10.4 release introduces the Direct3D 9 state tracker to Gallium3D drivers, Wine developers aren't yet ready to support it.

In terms of the changes that did happen over the past two weeks for the new Wine 1.7.32 release, the highlights include:
- New version of the Mono engine.
- A few more functions implemented in MSHTML.
- Improved support for restoring display mode.
- Font metrics improvements in DirectWrite.
- Various bug fixes.
There's 46 known bug fixes to this 1.7.32 release. More details on the new development version of Wine can be found at WineHQ.org.
