WINE --
Wine 1.9.24 is out as the newest bi-weekly development release of this program for running Windows binaries on Linux and other operating systems.

Wine 1.9.24 isn't the most exciting release by far in recent memory but does have support for unordered access views in Direct3D, fixes to regression tests, improvements in HID support, and various bug-fixes. In total there are 28 known bug-fixes with this new version.

There are just a handful of Direct3D 11 related commits to this release, including lieing about threading support, adding some new tests, and implementing UAV binding.

More details on Wine 1.9.24 via the official release announcement at WineHQ.org.

While there is just one month left to 2016, last year was talking of moving to annual, time-based releases, but so far nothing is indicating that the Wine 2.0 release is still set to happen in 2016 given there are usually a few release candidates prior to going stable. CodeWeavers had also been talking about delivering Direct3D 11 support in 2016, but that too is looking tight unless there is a big last minute push.
