Hi all :-)

About Chen Minqiang comments :

1) the DIB engine won't be accepted, in particular if embedded in winex11.drv.
This has already been discussed thousands of times.

2) Embedding it in winex11.drv would mean to rebase it on EVERY wine change;
summed with point 1 would mean an huge work for the maintainer, and I don't
have time anymore for it.

3) About the bugs : last time I tested it, winedib.drv passed MORE tests than
original winex11 alone.
That said, the code is fully and extensively commented (even too much, on some
people's opinion...), so if you want to fix some bugs, you're wellcome.
As I said some time ago, I don't have much time anymore to fix them and, as it
would be never included in official wine, it's almost an useless task.

4) winedib code is NOT based on old source code; it's a "bridge" between gdi
and winex11 and, besides some very late changes, is up to date with wine
codebase; by design it will be so for long time, besides the need to rebase
configure.ac file from time to time.
That said, if somebody wants to take the task of rewriting it from scratch he's
*very* wellcome :-)
