WINE --
The latest bi-weekly Wine development release is making a Halloween debut.

The newest release, Wine 1.7.30, still lacks the Direct3D command stream multi-threading work or any breakthroughs in better Direct3D 10/11 support, but it continues working on Wine's recent focus of DirectWrite support, a text layout and glyph rendering API with hardware aceleration that began in the Windows 7 days to replace their GDI(+) interface.

The main changes over the past two weeks for Wine 1.7.30 include:

- More support for fonts in DirectWrite.
- Improved ATL thunk support.
- A few more C runtime functions.
- Regedit import/export fixes.

There's also 50 known bug-fixes within Wine 1.7.30. More details on the changes can be found via WineHQ.org.
