Wine 1.7.11 is released last friday! Altough my primairy focus is not Wineskin anymore but Crossover, Wine is still the sourcecode where it is all about and will be iplanted in Crossover soon as well. And if you have of games and want to see if there are some improvements with the latest WineEngine then this news might be worthwhile. The wine version will be buildt in an engine and will be available in “Winery“. Winery is a program where you can build wrappers with, and is available on the Wineskin website. I used Winery to buildt all my wrappers for this website. Because the new Wine is just released, the engine itself is not available yet in Winery, but will be added soon by Doh123 (Wineskin developer). Main focus has been especially fonts fixes/improvements. Besides that there are some more d3d improvements as well. See more details below and on Winehq.

- Uniscribe support in the RichEdit control.
- Support for condition variables and Slim Reader/Writer locks.
