Improved 3D lighting (at the cost of speed)
Several CPU emulation optimizations
Several 3D speedups, a few CPU emulation fixes.
Improved 2D/3D blending, several CPU emulation fixes
Just about everything.
2D is working as well as it does in Windows, which is pretty well.
What does not
3D still tends to have problems rendering some models at all. (Bug 10281, seems to be a layering issue with Wine) Rendering speed is pretty much equal (and in some cases faster!)
Resizing the "Open file" dialog does not work. (Bug 10394) This can be worked around by using a native dll override, but it brings up a lot of problems in the file dialog. Not worth it.
The file dialog also does not remember the last folder you were in after you close the application. (Bug 10284)
What was not tested
Wifi (This doesn't even work in windows. Very much a WIP)
Great emulator. If you want a NDS emulator in Linux and don't want to use the native DeSmuME, then this is the one to run in Wine. In fact, this outperforms DeSmuME.
