WineX 3.3 Released

Transgaming announces the release of WineX 3.3. WineX allows Linux users to play Windows games. I use it to play Diablo II and Jedi Academy, among others. The most important new feature is the addition of support for Valve's Steam technology. You can check out the full changelog with all the fixes and additions. Cool stuff. Not that you asked, but I am a subscriber.

New IE Exploit Based on Leaked Code

Security Tracker has news of a new Internet Explorer exploit created as a result of the leaked Windows source code. The exploit only affects IE5. Of course, I'm of the opinion that if you are still using IE5, you're basically asking for it. Thanks Slashdot, I guess.

The Master comments: What gets me is that it took someone in the "user community" (you know, the people Microsoft is busy exploiting for stock value) less than a week after the leaked Windows source was widely released to find an easily exploited hole in Windows. Now, WHO is working on Microsoft's highly touted secure Windows initiative? I'm guessing monkeys. And not human ones.

64-Bit UT2K4 Linux Demo Released

Ryan "icculus" Gordon announced that a 64-bit version of the Unreal Tournament 2004 Linux demo is available for download. He also gives a list of mirrors and download instructions. Obviously, you will need a 64-bit processor like an AMD64 and a 64-bit Linux operating system to run this. Actually, this is a pretty historic event: the first PC game with 64-bit support!
