I will be doing a talk about WINE and how it has changed the situation for new Linux users that come from Windows and how it has matured from the start till know. I have much info already about it and from experience but right now I am looking for the history of how it has evolved in regards to compatibility or better support for video and audio features such as:

  • DirectX 9, 10, 11
  • Pixel Shading
  • Vertex Shader
  • Bump Mapping, Tessellation...
  • Sound Stereo, 5.1...
  • OpenGL supports

And around what version this features happened. Does not matter if they are not complete but at least some support about them. I have already read some links like:



but still I do not have enough information to tell for example in what version or versions WINE got support for important video/sound features. This is what I am basically looking for but any other info that I can talk about would be good to.

  • Have you tried downloading the source for Wine and looking at ChangeLog?

Download source for Wine and take a look at documentation/ChangeLog.* files. They have every change committed for the project.

  • No I have not tried that....I will now crawl under a rock for not thinking something so obvious... Feb 16 '12 at 16:25
