    Default WINE 1.1.20 Brings More Direct3D Cleaning

    Phoronix: WINE 1.1.20 Brings More Direct3D Cleaning

    The WINE 1.1.20 release coming as the latest bi-weekly development update to this open-source project brings a couple of highlights. WINE 1.1.20 has more Direct3D code clean-ups, which is a good sign considering they hope to really get underway with Direct3D 10.0 support this summer, and there is now support for showing a WINE dialog when a Windows application crashes, improved OLE copy/paste support, ListView improvements, and the variety of bug-fixes. The WINE 1.1.20 release announcement along with download links and the complete change-log is available from WINE HQ...

    A very cool thing is that the DirectX dlls are now included and properly configured, so you don't have to make that work yourself for newer games!

    Heh, the problem is that 90% of the d3dx9 functions are still not implemented, so games will crash anyways
    We're having two Summer of Code projects this year though, in which we will implement the texture and shader functions, i.e. some of the most used functions (I think they're actually the only ones apart from the effect functions which are mentioned in our Bugzilla).

    EDIT: btw, I had added these dlls in February 2008 already, it's just that we closed the concerned bug now

    So the new bug is called "d3dx9_*.dll are mostly unimplemented"
