Ever since Canonical removed native OSS support (removed in Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04), Starcraft sound has been very poor-i.e. scratchy, delayed, clipped, skipped, and sometimes no sound at all. I suspect PulseAudio had some part in it, but removing it broke so many other desktop sound functions.

Anyways, 1.3.30 with directsound works perfect-even with PA enabled!  The new DIB engine seems to make Starcraft menu navigation and in- game panning extremely smooth (wish I had a way to quantify the improvement).  Regardless, game play is definitely platinum.  

So, even though I don't use CW to run windows apps, I renewed my CW's subscription (again) as another way say thanks for all the hard work!
