The Wine team has announced that the stable release of Wine 3.0 is now available.
This release represents a year of development effort and over 6,000 individual changes. It contains a large number of improvements that are listed in the release notes. The main highlights are:
- Direct3D 10 and 11 support.
- The Direct3D command stream.
- The Android graphics driver.
- Improved DirectWrite and Direct2D support.
Once again, because of the annual release schedule, a number of features that are being worked on have been deferred to the next development cycle. This includes, in particular, Direct3D 12 and Vulkan support, as well as OpenGL ES support to enable Direct3D on Android.
