Last week Wine 1.3.31 was released. If you have been wondering when the next stable release, Wine 1.4, will arrive now that many development releases have occurred in the 1.3 series and it's been more than a year since the last major release (Wine 1.2), here's some information...
I was wondering about one input related behaviour thing that I always liked as a feature.
For example in warcraft 3: Unlike in windows I could have had warcraft 3 running in a virtual desktop and then just alt-tab another window above it. Warcraft would catch the mouse pointer when it was focussed and would release it when another window was focussed.
Unfortunately this feature hasn't been there for some versions: The mouse pointer keeps being stuck in warcraft 3 which is running on a wine virtual desktop even if another window has the focus. And by stuck I don't mean, that it not only cannot leave the are, it also can not interact with any other window.
So as a workaround I need to minimize the window to do anything with any other window which is kind of annoying.
And so I was wondering: Is it supposed to work that way? Or is this going to get corrected in future versions?
