For people unfamiliar with WINE, this (probably) means you can run Starcraft at reasonable speeds.
The DIB engine

(Found this when at one time I used Wine a lot to "package" many old children's CD-ROM games for my son so that he could start them with one click from the Linux desktop. Many titles needed the Xephyr hack).

I ran into both of those problems because of kids CD-ROM games as well.

Right. The DIB engine has been a blocker for countless bugs that I've been interested in for...over a decade.
Plus all the other changes (several of which are also major improvements), this sounds like the most significant Wine release *ever*.
