CODEWEAVERS LAUNCHES CROSSOVER 13 FOR LINUX AND MAC

Update includes “Performance Enhanced Graphics,” promising massive improvements to gaming potency Frame rate improvements of 40%, 60%, or even more...
 
SAINT PAUL, Minn (November 12, 2013) — CodeWeavers, Inc., developer of CrossOver software which enables Mac and Linux users to run Windows software on their computers without the need of a Microsoft license, announced today the release of its new software, CrossOver 13.

The centerpiece of release 13 is a dramatic improvement in graphics performance, particularly for games. According to CodeWeavers’ CEO Jeremy White, “Even though it’s been shown in many studies that frame rate isn’t the only measure of game play satisfaction, the truth is that many gamers do measure their success by their frame rate. With Performance Enhanced Graphics, now they can play their games any time the moment’s right.”

The reaction from CodeWeavers beta testers has been euphoric. Though user’s mileage may vary depending on their individual… hardware, frame rate increases of between 40-60% (or more) have been noted on titles such as Torchlight 2. One tester noticed a 2x-3x improvement in StarCraft 2. According to another, "With CrossOver 13, I can re-live all of the greatest moments of my misspent gaming youth, with excellent, near-native performance. I can once again be a nano-augmented resurrected Viking warrior working for the NSA, while mowing down innocent civilians in a four-wheeled death machine! Thanks, CodeWeavers!”

The key to CrossOver 13 is a new series of technical enhancements referred to internally as “The Command Stream.” The Command Stream allows CrossOver’s underlying open-source technology, Wine, to process graphical commands separately from CPU-related commands. “This means there’s no waiting around for the GPU to finish what it’s doing,” said White. “Command Stream passes redraws to the GPU just the way it likes it—hard and fast. And everybody gets instant gratification as a result.”

White cautions that Performance Enhanced Graphics is not yet a magic (blue) pill for every game out there. “I can’t promise you that the Command Stream will work miracles on every title. Every GPU’s needs and physiology are slightly different, and not all of them will react as passionately to the Command Stream as others. But for many titles, even middle-aged titles, we’ve been very pleased by what we’ve seen. Many folks will notice that Performance Enhanced Graphics gives them the confidence they need to be ready to play their favorite games. So, if you haven’t tried CrossOver for a while, now is a great time to give it a whirl again.”

CrossOver 13 is immediately available at www.CodeWeavers.com. Ask your computer doctor if CrossOver 13 is right for you, or download a free trial from www.CodeWeavers.com and try it in the privacy of your own home.

Announcing CrossOver 13.0.0

Hello all,

I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released CrossOver 13.0.0 for both Mac OS X and Linux.

The focus of CrossOver 13.0.0 is better performance for games. CrossOver 13.0.0 includes our new Performance Enhanced Graphics. With Performance Enhanced Graphics, CrossOver creates a dedicated thread for graphics commands, making better use of the CPU and GPU.  During in-house testing we have seen some frame rates double what they were with earlier versions of CrossOver.

CrossOver 13.0.0 also includes numerous other enhancements for your favorite Windows applications.  This release includes a new version of Wine - the open source Windows API layer that makes your Windows applications run.  On the Mac, CrossOver 13.0.0 includes several fixes to our Mac Driver.  On Linux, we are now shipping multiarch packages on Debian-based distributions, which should make for smoother installation of CrossOver.

A changelog for CrossOver 13.0.0 is shown below.

Mac customers with active support entitlements will be upgraded to Crossover 13 the next time they launch Crossover. Linux users can download the latest version from http://www.codeweavers.com/.

If Crossover asks for registration use your codeweavers.com email address & password to register and unlock Crossover. Email info@codeweavers.com if you need more help.

Thank you all for your support, and we hope you enjoy CrossOver 13.0.0!  

Changelog:
==========
CrossOver 13.0.0 - 11/12/2013

* Games Support:

 o CrossOver 13 has our new Performance Enhanced Graphics. Games will run faster, with higher frame rates! This is a major overhaul of the 3D graphics processing in CrossOver, and gives significant improvements in many, many popular games.
 o The launcher for Borderlands 2 is working.
 o Both the Gem Store and mouse work with Guild Wars 2.
 o The mouse pointer in Terraria is now accurate when the window is resized or zoomed.
 o Rendering bugs with RIFT on NVIDIA hardware are fixed.
 o Multi-core rendering can now be enabled in Source games.
 o Mirror's Edge now runs under CrossOver.

* Mac OS X:

 o Input Managers will no longer cause Windows applications running under CrossOver to crash.
 o When you Command-Tab out of a full-screen program and then back, CrossOver will restore that program's display resolution setting.
 o CrossOver uses accelerated OpenGL in all cases.
 o Added support for Mac-style full-screen windows.
 o Enhanced the system tray icon support to handle right-clicks and middle-clicks.
 o Fix a bug which could cause CrossOver to display two mouse cursors in some applications.
 o Lots of window management fixes.
 o Fixed scrolling going diagonal when it shouldn't.
 o Fixed certain programs (e.g. Quicken 2013) failing to launch when using certain keyboard layouts (e.g. US International PC).
 o Fixed a bug where the select-bottle section of the Software Installer window would say Please Wait forever.
 o Improved icon extraction from Windows executables.
 
* Linux:

 o Architecture specifications have been removed from our package installer filenames. That is, our package installers filenames no longer include the 'i386' specifier. This is purely a cosmetic change in the filenames we ship - some customers were confused, believing they needed a different installer for 64-bit machines, which is not true after the switch to multiarch.
 o Files saved with Microsoft Office are no longer marked as 'executable,' meaning they can be opened by clicking on them in Nautilus or other file browsers.

* Application Support:

 o Project 2010 will run faster.
 o Macros function much better in Microsoft Excel.
 o Access 2000 user interaction is smoother on OS X.
 o The system tray for QQ is functional now on OS X.
 o Kayak Foundry will load files again.
 o Fixed a crash in the Chinese version of Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition.

Limited post for awhile due to lifes many challenges

I'm not sure if most of my readers know that I live in the Philippines, but that's where Ive called home for the past five years. Two years ago our family's house was destroyed in Typhoon Sendong in Cagayan De Oro City. And this past week Typhoon Haiyan caused wide spread devastation across the Philippines and as a result ive got to move my family once again because the house that were currently in has major problems with the roofing and cracks in the walls. The cracks were caused by last months 7.2 earthquake centered in Bohol.

If you would like to donate your pocket change to me you can send it to my paypal account.

The paypal email account is : sales@wine-reviews.net

Run Windows apps on both OS X & Linux with CrossOver 12.5

Don't want to dual-boot your Mac or Linux PC to run one or two Windows apps? Don't want to install a full virtual operating system for them? CodeWeaver's latest version of CrossOver 12.5 may be just what you want.

Most Mac and Linux users think anything Windows can do their operating systems can do better. Often, they're right, but then there comes that day when they really need to run that one special Windows application and then they're stuck.


CrossOver12.5
Run Windows programs from your Linux desktop or Mac? With CrossOver, it's easy.
There are many ways of handling this. Some people keep old Windows PC around; others dual boot their computers; and quite a few run virtual machines (VM)s of Windows on their Linux PCs and Macs. That's all fine, but it's also a fair amount of trouble.

Then, there's CodeWeaver's approach: Use a program, CrossOver, which enables you to install and run the one or two Windows applications you need on your favorite operating system. CrossOver is based on the open-source project Wine, an implementation of the Windows application programming interface (API) on top of the Unix/Linux operating system family. For each application, CrossOver/Wine creates a small Windows virtual machine just for that program.

You actually don't need CrossOver to run Windows applications on Linux or a Mac. You can do it with Wine alone -- if you know precisely what you're doing. What CrossOver gives you is easy, automated installation of Windows applications, and technical support. And in this latest version, the CrossOver interface has been improved so it's easier than ever to install and manage Windows applications.

The latest version -- CrossOver 12.5, which is based on Wine 1.6 -- supports  thousands of Windows programs. These include: Quicken, Adobe Photoshop, various versions of the Microsoft Office suite; and, of course lots and lots of games. On the fun side of computing, CrossOver supports Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and thousands of others.

Not all programs run equally well. Before you invest in buying CrossOver, which runs $59.95, you'll want to take CodeWeavers up on its offer of a free two-week trial to make sure that your particular must-have program will run right with it.

In particular, this latest version offers better support for Microsoft Outlook, Quicken, Internet Explorer 7, and improved compatibility with the Microsoft Office suite. The company has also fixed several crashes and made numerous usability improvements.

This edition also offers a real improvement in its interoperability with Mac OS X. CrossOver 12.5, which will run with Snow Leopard or later, now has the"Mac Driver" technology enabled by default for all applications. The company claims that this brings improved integration with the OS X desktop environment and improves functions such as drag-and-drop, command-tab switching, Dock and Menu Bar integration, and window transparency. In my limited testing with my Mountain Lion-powered Mac Mini, Mac Driver lived up to these claims.

On Linux, CrossOver boasts a new user interface. This makes it much easier to launch your installed Windows applications. I also found it easier in general to install Windows apps on Linux with CrossOver 12.5. CrossOver isn't perfect. Many Windows applications won't run properly with it. But, many will work with it, and if you only need a couple of Windows apps to make your Linux or Mac computing life complete then CrossOver may well be exactly what you need.

Give it a try and find out for yourself. It won't cost you a thing.

Direct3D Performance Improvements Coming To Wine

Stefan Dösinger of CodeWeavers has been working on some Direct3D performance improvements for Wine by creating a separate command stream / worker thread for WineD3D. This work moves OpenGL calls into a separate thread in order to improve performance while also fixing some outstanding bugs. This work can yield 50~100% performance improvements and in some cases making the games under Wine faster than on Windows.

If you want to help support this work consider purchasing a copy of CrossOver  12.5 from CodeWeavers. You can use promo code WeaveMe and receive a instant 25% discount off the normal selling price.

Stefan's email sent to the wine Development mailing list :


Hi,

In the past months I have been working on a command stream / worker
thread for wined3d. It moves most OpenGL calls into a separate thread
to improve performance (bug 11674) and fix some bugs that are
otherwise hard to fix (24684).

You can test the attached patches by applying them (git am
/path/to/patches/*) and setting HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D/CSMT =
"enabled". Make sure to disable StrictDrawOrdering. It is no longer
required with those patches and will destroy any performance gains.
(It might be useful for debugging though). The patches apply on top of
Wine 1.7.1.

Please test those patches with your games. I'm interested in any
successes or failures and performance differences. Performance numbers
with plain Wine 1.7.1, this patchset with CSMT off and on, and Wine
1.7.7 + bugzilla attachment 44420 and __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS
would be greatly appreciated.

A notes for non-developers:
*) GPU limited games don't see any improvement. If you're GPU limited
heavilly depends on your hardware

*) So far I have not tested anything but Nvidia hardware. It should
work on all GPUs and drivers though.

*) Yes, this is essentially the same as Nvidia's
__GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS. Just driver independent, under our
control, and thus easier to fix bugs.

*) A lot of games see 50%-100% performance improvements and now run as
fast as on Windows or even faster. Examples are Source-Engine based
games, StarCraft 2, 3DMark 2001.

*) Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is improved a lot because you no
longer need StrictDrawOrdering. It's still not as good as it could be,
because it uses dynamic surfaces, which aren't properly implemented in
the patchset yet.

*) Some games have CPU-side bottlenecks outside d3d. Mass Effect 2
seems to be one of those.

*) Some games have CPU-side bottlenecks in the GL driver, and
comparably little game logic on their own. I think this applies to Civ
V, which doesn't see much improvement with those patches.

Some implementation notes:
*) One of the big design decisions is to do all OpenGL calls from one
thread, including resource creation and buffer maps. This is faster
than using glFlush calls to synchronize anything we do from the main
thread, and easier than trying to sync everything in a performant
fashion with ARB_sync. This means I need the priority command queue.
This is not yet fully implemented though, so you see GL calls from the
main thread as well.

*) There seem to be driver bugs when calling into GL from two threads,
even though those are two different contexts. Remember, we don't have
the GL lock any longer.

*) The other controversial design decision is that the command stream
does not hold any references to objects stored in pending commands or
its own state structure. This prevents the client libraries and
applications from "seeing" the CS via delayed destruction of objects
and freeing of application private data.

*) Currently resource destruction waits for the CS to execute all
pending commands. The goal is to handle private resources and removal
from the device's resource list in the main thread and freeing of GL
resources, freeing of resource->heap_memory and freeing of the main
structure in the worker thread.

*) A big issue that needs fixing is that there isn't a clear
separation between functions that are called from the main thread and
functions that are called from the worker thread. The plan is to
introduce comments similar to those that clarify who is responsible
for context activation.

*) Buffers are double-buffered and use glBufferSubData when the
multithreaded CS is in use. This is necessary because we can't draw
from a mapped buffer. In the long run GL_ARB_buffer_storage should be
able to fix this.

*) You can roughly see how surface and volume handling is going to
work in the volume code. I am not entirely happy with the code yet, I
hacked it together in the past few days...

*) The plan behind wined3d_device_get_bo and wined3d_device_release_bo
is to cache created GL BOs. Before I do that I have to write a
benchmark for dynamic volumes to verify that this is really a
performance improvement.

*) Before this can be merged, surfaces need a cleanup similar to
volumes. It's going to be a lot trickier though.

*) The tests should run with the single-threaded and multi-threaded
command stream.

*) There should not be any temporary regressions with the
single-threaded CS. If something's broken, git bisect should work with
CSMT off.

*) With CSMT on, there are a few known regressions and test failures.
The d3d9 and ddraw tests fail between patch 18 and 71. Occlusion
queries are broken between 22 and 108. In general nothing's working
right between 80 and 99. Some of those problems can be fixed or their
impact reduced, but I will not be able to completely avoid them. The
ddraw test failure is a driver bug and GL occlusion queries break by
design when used from a different thread. So if you try to bisect a
regression in this patch series with CSMT on YMMV.

*) This work was originally started by Henri. Some patches in the
series are from him and either unmodified or with minor adjustments.
Some patches are based on his work, but with heavy modifications.

Cheers,
Stefan

Run Windows apps on both OS X & Linux with CrossOver 12.5

Most Mac and Linux users think anything Windows can do their operating systems can do better. Often, they're right, but then there comes that day when they really need to run that one special Windows application and then they're stuck.



CrossOver12.5
Run Windows programs from your Linux desktop or Mac? With CrossOver, it's easy.
There are many ways of handling this. Some people keep old Windows PC around; others dual boot their computers; and quite a few run virtual machines (VM)s of Windows on their Linux PCs and Macs. That's all fine, but it's also a fair amount of trouble.


Then, there's CodeWeaver's approach: Use a program, CrossOver, which enables you to install and run the one or two Windows applications you need on your favorite operating system.
CrossOver is based on the open-source project Wine, an implementation of the Windows application programming interface (API) on top of the Unix/Linux operating system family. For each application, CrossOver/Wine creates a small Windows virtual machine just for that program.

You actually don't need CrossOver to run Windows applications on Linux or a Mac. You can do it with Wine alone -- if you know precisely what you're doing. What CrossOver gives you is easy, automated installation of Windows applications, and technical support. And in this latest version, the CrossOver interface has been improved so it's easier than ever to install and manage Windows applications.
The latest version -- CrossOver 12.5, which is based on Wine 1.6 -- supports  thousands of Windows programs. These include: Quicken, Adobe Photoshop, various versions of the Microsoft Office suite; and, of course lots and lots of games. On the fun side of computing, CrossOver supports Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and thousands of others.

Not all programs run equally well. Before you invest in buying CrossOver, which runs $59.95, you'll want to take CodeWeavers up on its offer of a free two-week trial to make sure that your particular must-have program will run right with it.

In particular, this latest version offers better support for Microsoft Outlook, Quicken, Internet Explorer 7, and improved compatibility with the Microsoft Office suite. The company has also fixed several crashes and made numerous usability improvements.

This edition also offers a real improvement in its interoperability with Mac OS X. CrossOver 12.5, which will run with Snow Leopard or later, now has the"Mac Driver" technology enabled by default for all applications. The company claims that this brings improved integration with the OS X desktop environment and improves functions such as drag-and-drop, command-tab switching, Dock and Menu Bar integration, and window transparency. In my limited testing with my Mountain Lion-powered Mac Mini, Mac Driver lived up to these claims.

On Linux, CrossOver boasts a new user interface. This makes it much easier to launch your installed Windows applications. I also found it easier in general to install Windows apps on Linux with CrossOver 12.5.

CrossOver isn't perfect. Many Windows applications won't run properly with it. But, many will work with it, and if you only need a couple of Windows apps to make your Linux or Mac computing life complete then CrossOver may well be exactly what you need.

CODEWEAVERS LAUNCHES CROSSOVER 12.5 FOR LINUX AND MAC

Update includes Wine 1.6, new Linux UI, better MS Outlook support, and full support for Chinese
 
SAINT PAUL, Minn (August 13, 2013) — CodeWeavers, Inc., developer of CrossOver software which enables Mac and Linux users to run Windows software on their computers without the need of a Microsoft license, announced today the release of its new software, CrossOver 12.5.

Although a point release, CrossOver 12.5.0 is a major step forward from previous versions of CrossOver. The new version incorporates the latest version of Wine - the Windows compatibility technology which underlies CrossOver. Wine 1.6 brings thousands of improvements to application compatibility.
On Linux, CrossOver has a new user interface. A list of launchers for all installed Windows applications is present in CrossOver's main application window, which improves usability with modern Linux desktop environments.

We have spent substantial time improving our support for Microsoft Outlook. Outlook users who run on laptops may notice that their Outlook connections remain active when their laptops change networks or awake from sleep. CrossOver 12.5.0 also includes improved support for Quicken, Internet Explorer 7, and improved compatibility with the Microsoft Office suite.\

Finally, CrossOver 12.5.0 has improved Chinese language support, and runs more popular Chinese applications than ever before. We have fixed crashes in the Chinese versions of Microsoft Office 2010; we have added Chinese language titles to our application database, and CrossOver is fully translated into Chinese. CodeWeavers has now begun selling CrossOver directly in China.
CrossOver is immediately available at www.CodeWeavers.com

 What's new in Wine 1.6
======================

*** User interface

- Window transparency is supported, including both color keying and
  alpha blending transparency.

- All window rendering is done on the client-side using the DIB engine
  (except for OpenGL rendering). This means that rendering to windows
  or bitmaps gives identical results.

- Common dialogs correctly scale with the screen DPI resolution.

- In virtual desktop mode, shortcuts placed in the Desktop folder are
  displayed on the desktop, and can be used to launch applications.

- The HTML Help control has better support for non-ASCII characters,
  and for multiple help windows.

- Custom painting and images are better supported in listview
  controls.

- Input validation is improved in the date and calendar controls.


*** Mac driver

- A native Mac OS X driver is implemented, for better integration with
  the Mac desktop environment. The full range of driver features are
  supported, including OpenGL, window management, clipboard, drag &
  drop, system tray, etc.

- X11 is no longer needed on Mac OS X, but the X11 driver is still
  supported, e.g. when running remotely.

Note: the Mac driver requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later, it cannot be
      built or used on 10.5.

- FontConfig is no longer needed on Mac OS X and is disabled by
  default, system fonts are enumerated using the Core Text API
  instead.


*** X11 driver

- X11 server-side font rendering is no longer supported. All fonts are
  rendered client-side using FreeType.

- The big lock around all X11 calls has been removed, we rely on the X
  libraries internal locking for thread safety.

- XRandR versions 1.2 and 1.3 are supported.


*** Graphics

- There are significant performance improvements in the DIB engine,
  particularly for text rendering, bitmap stretching, alpha blending,
  and gradients.

- Bounds tracking is supported for all graphics primitives, to enable
  copying only the modified portions of a bitmap.

- OpenGL rendering is supported in device-independent bitmaps using libOSMesa.

- Brush dithering is implemented in the DIB engine.

- Path gradients are implemented in GdiPlus.

- More image codecs features are implemented, including JPEG encoding,
  palette formats, and meta-data support for various image types.


*** Text and fonts

- Sub-pixel font anti-aliasing is supported in the DIB engine, using
  the system anti-aliasing configuration from FontConfig.

- Dynamic loading of scalable font resources is supported.

- Text layout in Uniscribe supports character-specific position
  adjustments. Right-to-left text handling is also improved.

- There is an initial implementation of the DirectWrite text layout
  engine.

- Built-in fonts are more complete, with the addition of FixedSys and
  Wingdings fonts, more high-resolution pixel fonts, and a wider range
  of glyphs in the existing fonts, notably Arabic glyphs in Tahoma.

- Bi-directional text support is improved in the RichEdit control.


*** Input devices

- The raw input API is supported for keyboard and mouse input.

- There is a joystick applet in the control panel, to allow
  configuring joysticks and testing their behavior.

- Force feedback is supported for Mac OS X joysticks.


*** Kernel

- DOSBox is tried first when running a DOS application. The Wine DOS
  support is only used as a fallback when DOSBox cannot be found, and
  will be removed in a future release.

- A monotonic time counter is used on platforms that support it, to
  make timers more robust against system time changes.

- File times are reported with nanosecond resolution.

- Wine can be configured to report the Windows version as 'Windows 8'.


*** .NET support

- The Mono runtime is packaged as an MSI file, and its installation
  can be managed from the "Add/Remove Programs" control panel. It is
  automatically installed on Wine prefix updates.

- .NET mixed mode assemblies are supported.

- The Microsoft .NET 4.0 runtime can be installed for cases where Mono
  is not good enough yet.


*** OLE / COM

- The typelib writer is reimplemented for better compatibility.

- OLE DB supports more data types and conversions.

- OLE automation manages a cache of string allocations for better
  performance and compatibility.


*** Internet and networking

- HTTPS connections use GnuTLS (or Secure Transport on Mac OS X).
  OpenSSL is no longer used.

- The TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 protocols are enabled by default, with
  automatic fallback to TLS 1.0. The SSL2 protocol is disabled by
  default.

- Security certificate validation errors are handled better.

- NTLM and Negotiate authentication protocols are supported.

- ActiveX controls can be downloaded and installed automatically.

- Internet proxy bypass is supported, and can be enabled either
  through the registry or with the no_proxy environment variable.

- Broadcast packets can be received on interface-bound sockets, which
  is needed for some networked multi-player games.

- The Server Name Indication TLS extension is supported.

- Persistent cookies are supported, and URL cache files are managed
  better. The Internet control panel allows clearing saved cookies and
  cache files.

- Punycode encoding for Internationalized Domain Names is supported.

- JavaScript performance is improved. The built-in JavaScript engine
  is preferred over the Gecko one in most cases.

- Many more built-in functions of VBScript are implemented. Regular
  expressions are also supported.

- The Gecko engine is updated to the version from Firefox 21.

- The Gecko and Mono installers are cached upon download, to allow
  installation in multiple Wine prefixes without additional downloads.


*** Direct3D

- The Direct3D 9Ex implementation is more complete. In particular:
  - IDirect3DDevice9Ex::PresentEx is implemented.
  - IDirect3DDevice9Ex::ResetEx is implemented.
  - Various Direct3D 9Ex display mode handling functions are implemented.
  - Direct3D 9Ex style video memory accounting is implemented.

- Like the X11 driver, WineD3D no longer uses the big X11 lock when
  making GL calls.

- The WineD3D graphics card database is updated to recognize more
  graphics cards.

- The fallback card detection code for unrecognized graphics cards is
  improved. This results in a more reasonable card being reported when
  the graphics card is not already in the WineD3D database.

- WineD3D has GLSL based implementations of Direct3D fixed-function
  vertex and fragment processing. In some cases this allows
  functionality that's not present in fixed-function OpenGL to be
  implemented, in other cases it allows functionality to be
  implemented in a more efficient way.

- On drivers that support it, GL_ARB_debug_output is used to get more
  detailed debugging output from the OpenGL driver.

- On drivers that support it, GL_ARB_framebuffer_sRGB is used for
  rendering to frame buffers in the sRGB color space.

- On drivers that support it, GL_ARB_instanced_arrays is used for more
  efficient instanced drawing.

- On drivers that support it, and return useful information,
  GL_ARB_internalformat_query2 is used for more accurate reporting of
  surface / texture format capabilities.

- There is an initial implementation of a HLSL compiler.

- Improvements to various parts of the D3DX9 implementation, including:
  - The surface and texture handling functions. This includes code for
    loading, saving, filling, and rendering to surfaces and textures.
  - The effects framework.
  - The constant table implementation.
  - A number of spherical harmonics functions have been implemented.
  - Support for .x files.

- Improvements to the Direct3D 10 implementation, including:
  - Support for more shader model 4 opcodes and register types.
  - Support for shader model 4 indirect addressing.
  - Initial geometry shader support.
  - Improved binary effect parsing.
  - Support for Direct3D 10 style instanced draws, using
    GL_ARB_draw_instanced.


*** DirectDraw

- Vertex buffers are created with WINED3DUSAGE_DYNAMIC when locked with
  DDLOCK_DISCARDCONTENTS, resulting in improved performance in some cases.

- The 2D-only fallback in WineD3D for using DirectDraw without a
  working OpenGL implementation is more robust. Note that this still
  isn't a recommended configuration.


*** Audio and video

- DirectSound has a better resampler.

- Audio device enumeration is improved, and multi-channel devices are
  better supported.

- VMR-9 video rendering is implemented.


*** Printer support

- The PPD files of already installed printers are automatically
  refreshed when needed.

- Printing resolution can be configured from the print dialog.

- Simulated italic fonts can be printed.

- On Mac OS X, the default paper size is retrieved from the system
  configuration.


*** Internationalization

- Japanese vertical text is correctly supported.

- Translated font names are used when there is a match for the current
  language.

- Wine is translated to French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch,
  Swedish, Finnish, Portuguese, Catalan, Hungarian, Polish, Danish,
  Russian, Slovenian, Lithuanian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and
  Arabic. It has partial translations for another fifteen languages.

- Various additional Mac OS code pages are supported, namely Japanese,
  Traditional Chinese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Romanian,
  Ukrainian, Thai, and Croatian code pages. This improves support for
  loading translated font names from Mac OS font files.


*** Built-in applications

- The new 'netstat' application displays information about active
  network connections.

- The 'cabarc' application supports multi-cabinet archives.

- The 'attrib' application supports recursing in sub-directories.

- The 'ipconfig' application can display IPv6 addresses.

- The 'start' application allows setting process priority and affinity.

- The 'cmd' application support arithmetic variable expansion,
  comparison operators, and various extra features in 'for' loops.

- All graphical built-in applications have a 256x256 icon for use with
  the Mac driver.


*** Build environment

- The configure script uses pkg-config when possible to find library
  dependencies. Compiler and linker flags can be passed explicitly for
  each dependency to override pkg-config where necessary.

- The IDL compiler supports nameless structs and unions and generates
  portable C code for them.

- The IDL compiler generates the same header guards as the Microsoft
  one for better header compatibility.

- Generated assembler files are built by invoking the C compiler when
  possible, for better compatibility with the Clang tool chain.

- The Winedump tool can display the contents of typelib files.

- The Fnt2bdf tool has been removed since X11 server-side fonts are no
  longer used.


*** Platform-specific changes

- On Linux, dynamic device management supports the UDisks2 service.

- On Mac OS X, the Recycle Bin is mapped to the Mac OS Trash.

- Debugging support for ARM platforms is improved, including the
  ability to display ARM assembly in the Wine debugger, and support
  for relay tracing.

- Building Wine for the ARM64 platform is supported.

- There is preliminary support for building Wine for Android using the
  Android NDK.

- The DragonFly FreeBSD variant is supported.

- The Alpha and Sparc platforms are no longer supported.


*** Miscellaneous

- XML namespaces are better supported. XML parsing is also implemented
  in the XMLLite library.

- Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is implemented, with a wide
  range of WBEM system classes.

- A number of forwarding libraries are added to support the API Sets
  feature added in Windows 8.

- More of the latest functions of the C runtime are implemented,
  particularly the locale functions. Exception handling and RTTI are
  supported on 64-bit.

- The standard C++ class libraries are more complete, particularly the
  math functions and the stream classes.


*** New external dependencies

- LibOSMesa is used for OpenGL rendering to device-independent bitmaps.


*** Useful configuration options

Note: More details about these and other configuration options can be
      found at http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys

- Client-side window rendering can be disabled if necessary by setting
  "ClientSideGraphics" to "N" under HKCU\Software\Wine\X11 Driver.

- On Mac OS X, in case an application doesn't work properly with the
  Mac driver, it is possible to go back to the X11 driver by setting
  "Graphics" to "x11" under HKCU\Software\Wine\Drivers.

- Some X11 compositors do not cope properly with transparent windows
  that use non-rectangular shapes. In that case, window shaping can be
  disabled by setting "ShapeLayeredWindows" to "N" under
  HKCU\Software\Wine\X11 Driver.

- The "VertexShaderMode" and "PixelShaderMode" settings under
  HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D have been replaced by the "MaxShaderModelVS",
  "MaxShaderModelGS" and "MaxShaderModelPS" (DWORD) settings. These allow
  limiting the maximum supported shader model version. Setting these to 0
  disables support for the corresponding shader type, like "VertexShaderMode"
  and "PixelShaderMode" did.

- The default value for the "AlwaysOffscreen" setting under
  HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D is "enabled". It can still be disabled
  by setting it to "disabled".


*** Known issues

- The addition of DirectWrite causes Steam to be unable to display
  text. This can be fixed either by setting dwrite.dll to disabled for
  steam.exe using Winecfg, or by running Steam with the -no-dwrite
  option.

- The removal of the big X11 lock can reveal locking bugs in old Xlib
  versions, notably on RHEL 5. The only solution is to upgrade the X
  libraries.
