  • Wine Could Use Student Developers For VKD3D, Other Direct3D Enhancements

    Like GCC, Debian, and other leading free software projects, Wine is hoping to have a few interested students take on some interesting summer projects this year thanks to the annual Google Summer of Code.

    The Wine project has been assembling and updating their summer project list to try to garner student interest in taking on one of these high profile tasks. Among the ideas being tossed around in the Wine camp are implementing more test cases for VKD3D / Direct3D 12, implementing Direct3D 10 Effects or more Direct3D Retained Mode functionality, improving the usefulness of Explorer.exe, enhancing the WineHQ AppDB website, porting WineLib to a new architecture like POWER or RISC-V, and others.
