The Wine camp is out with their latest bi-weekly development release where they have continued focusing on some of the same work items they've been trying to address the past few releases.

Wine 1.9.13 features continued work on Shader Model 5 (SM5) support as needed for Direct3D 11 support. Wine 1.9.13 also is making more progress towards Direct3D Command Stream support for the long-standing multi-threaded work to boost Wine gaming performance. However, for Wine 1.9.13 the CSMT work hasn't landed nor separately is the D3D11 work yet in usable form.

Wine 1.9.13 also features a new version of the Gecko engine derived from Firefox 47, Unicode 9.0 support, improvements to GDI paths and meta-files, joystick support improvements on OS X, and a total of 34 known bug-fixes.
