[Wine] How come wine doesn't improve?

Well, it's not the impression I have. I guess your impression is, as 
mine, based on a quite small applications sample, that is not really 
representative. Maybe none of them use features that are actively 
developped in wine for now (Direct3D, TWAIN, RPC ...), and maybe you 
won't see a bug fix that corrected many apps but broke one of yours. You 
will say "there's less apps working" whereas there will be a bunch of 
new working apps.

Or maybe you're waiting for a long time for one of your apps to work 
properly, and you don't see any improvement. Every new version of wine, 
you launch your app, and you see exactly the same behaviour. If this is 
the case, you should read this :

Don't worry, wine does improve !
