Another fortnight, another winetricks.

New version 20110117-alpha adds the following new verbs:

firefox4 - beta9 of Firefox's new web browser
ut3 - the first-person shooter Unreal Tournament 3 (requires dvd)
hegemonygold_demo - the strategy game Hegemony Gold,
dxdiag - Microsoft's native dxdiag app

plus many less noticable improvements.  It should be
ready to replace classic winetricks now... let me know if
you find it lacking.

Also, to celebrate the new version (and foil domain squatters),
I've given it an easier to remember download url:

and svn repository / bug tracker:

(The old download url at will
still work, they're symlinked.)
