Delphi and Kylix Announce
Marcus Meissner posted some report about a Borland announcement (
in.financefeed..ne), even quoting some parts:
Borland will unveil its Delphi programming kit for Linux, called
Kylix. The product is designed to let people write software that
works with Linux and Windows, sources said. The software has been
developed with help from CodeWeavers, a group working to
commercialize the Wine software for running Windows software on

DirectDraw & TransGaming Announce
Gavriel State announced a new version of the TransGaming D3D patch
( for more details):
Just wanted to mention that a new TransGaming patch is available from
our web-site now. This patch is mostly just to bring our AFPLed
D3D work into sync with the DirectX changes that we've contributed
to WineHQ CVS lately. There's not much new on the D3D side, though
we're working hard with some hardware and sofware vendors to
improve performance there, which you'll see in upcoming releases.
The nicest thing about the latest release is that we've
incorporated Andreas Mohr's SetWindowLong patch, which along with
the work he did on CreateProcess now allows InstallShield
installers to work properly.
The other big news item is that with our recent DirectInput work,
and a minor tweak to Wine's OpenGL thunking layer, American
McGee's Alice demo now works perfectly. The full version won't
work, due to SafeDisk copy protection, but we're starting to talk
to engineers at Macrovision to help us resolve that issue.
