I had a look at the DLLs, and most of the changes are fixes to get WineD3D 
compiled on Windows with Visual Studio. In DDraw, there are a number of 
nameless union changes. Also in each dll(ddraw,d3d8,d3d9) they added a 
passthrough option to call the original MS libs. In WineD3D they replaced GLX 
with their propritary OpenGL ICD.

There is also one attempted bugfix for a lighting problem, but which is 
wrong(and wine 0.9.36 has a test to show that they are wrong).

All in all there is nothing really interesting in their changes, however I 
have written a nice reply mail back inviting them to participate actively in 
the development of WineD3D.
