Written by Michael Larabel in WINE on 10 June 2016 at 10:56 AM EDT. 8 Comments
Just like clock work, the latest bi-weekly development build of Wine is available this morning.

Wine 1.9.12 is this latest development release and it features a bug-fix update to the Mono engine, initial version of a taskbar in the desktop mode, fixes for right-to-left languages in Uniscribed, continued work on more Shader Model 4 (SM4) support within Direct3D, better meta-file support in RichEdit, and various bug fixes. In total there are 20 known bug-fixes for this release.

Overall it's another hearty update but nothing new to report on with the Command-Stream Multi-Threading (CSMT) work or D3D11 support aside from the continued SM4 progress. More details -- and the complete list of changes -- for Wine 1.9.12 can be found via
