The Wine camp is out with their latest bi-weekly development release where they have continued focusing on some of the same work items they've been trying to address the past few releases.
Wine 1.9.13 features continued work on Shader Model 5 (SM5) support as needed for Direct3D 11 support. Wine 1.9.13 also is making more progress towards Direct3D Command Stream support for the long-standing multi-threaded work to boost Wine gaming performance. However, for Wine 1.9.13 the CSMT work hasn't landed nor separately is the D3D11 work yet in usable form.
The trouble with video files is that they are not easily parseable. How can your computer tell whether that 8 GB file in your ~/Movies folder is the latest superhero movie, or your daughter's soccer game?
I consider myself an early adopter of digital content. I prefer a digital format, and since I consume a lot of independent content that doesn't have the budget for physical releases anyway, most of my purchases are digital files. I keep these on an NFS shared drive, and stream to Kodi or ncmpcpp, or whatever media client I happen to be using on any given Linux or Android device.
Recently I upgraded my laptop's Linux to the latest release, and I was surprised and saddened to discover that the wonderful music player Guayadeque seems to be considered as dead upstream, at least in Debian and Ubuntu. In a January blog post, the original author Juan Rios (@anonbeat) wrote that he is no longer able to support the code, which relies on outdated version of GStreamer 0.10. (When I asked about the status of Guayadeque on AskUbuntu, someone replied that it can now be built from source using the code on GitHub, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.)
