Wine 2.3 Released with Mortal Kombat X, Kholat and The Witcher 3 Improvements

Wine 2.3 is now the newest development release, the third of its kind after the release of the major Wine 2.0 stable series earlier this year. Prominent features include improvements to ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) support on 64-bit platforms, more Shader Model 5 instructions, and additional work on the Direct3D command stream. Other than that, it looks like the underline rendering was improved in DirectWrite and the deprecated wineinstall script has been finally removed. Of course, numerous bugs reported by users since previous development releases have been addressed.
