    It’s 0.9.21, not 0.9.2.1 :-)

    It’s just more snappy on Fedora, than the nearby Cedega installation. I hope Gav gets with the ReactOS developers, if this is all Transgaming has to offer when the main Wine trunc at Wine Headquarters is superior. Also, the main Wine trunk has better USB support.

    Not to sound like a “this is better” kind of post, but Transgaming really could get the greater share and market hold by the President performing the “castle maneuver” right into the ReactOS chambers. The Transgaming portage software would make much more sense there, in a truly optimized non-Microsoft distribution that is a drop-in replacement for native Win32.

    ReactOS is LGPL/GPL and that won’t work with transgaming development “model”.

    It would work. I have a ReactOS running on a VM next to me, and it’s slick with all the win16 portage I’m moving along.

    Anyone here remember Norton Desktop? That’s a great companion for all flavours of Wine.

    I was so happy that 0.9.20 finally allowed me to play a bit of halflife2 and now 0.9.21 breaks it again :(
    Will this thing ever be usable for anything except notepad? *sigh*

    Hi,

    I have been the one responsible for the opengl changes. These changes will greatly improve opengl support in the near future. One of the changes caused an unexpected regression in Direct3D. We know what the issue is and this will be fixed in 0.9.22.

    Second there’s a small regression for ATI fglrx users in case of OpenGL32 games like WoW. I also have a fix for this which will be in 0.9.22.

    I can’t promise that there won’t be any 3D regressions in upcoming wine versions but such regressions aren’t planned.

    For now switch back to Wine 0.9.20 or wait till wine cvs contains the fixes. HL2, WoW and all others games should soon work fine on all setups.
