WINE --
Wine 1.9.23 is now available as the newest development version of this popular program for running Windows applications/games on Linux and other operating systems.

Official changes for Wine 1.9.23 include:
- HID bus support for macOS.
- Color font support in Direct2D.
- More color formats in Direct3D.
- Uninstallation fixes in MSI.
- Various bug fixes.
The bug fixes include 32 known fixes.

Aside from adding support for many more formats to the Direct3D code, there are several other D3D code improvements including some work on D3D10/11 test cases, but unfortunately nothing major for supporting these newer Direct3D versions (though there is some async data loader interfaces added) nor when it comes to D3D Command-Stream Multi-Threading.
