With WineConf 2017 going on, Wine [Official Site] founder Alexandre Julliard has given his keynote speech which covers a number of topics which I will summarise for you.
Here's what they're expecting for Wine 3.0:
- Direct3D 11
- Direct3D command stream
- Android driver
- Message-mode pipes
- Version bumped to Windows 7
Roadmap for the future:
- OpenGL Core contexts
- Android packaging
- Code freeze (expected soon)
- 3.0 release (end of year)
- Direct3D 12 / Vulkan
- Wayland driver (they've started working on it)
They're also approaching 4 million lines of code (for those that care about that sort of thing). Sounds like a lot, but it's a rather complicated project of course.
I think that pretty much sums up everything included. If you wish to watch it yourself, you can find the video below:
Sounds like Wine is going to have a rather bright future, which is good news for those of you not wanting to give up a few Windows games and applications while using Linux.
