I see that the DirectX 9 backend is in development. And according to this page, there are plans for DirectX 11 and OpenGL 3.
I would like to know what are the advantages of these backends on the Windows version.

It's OpenGL ES 3 not OpenGL 3 btw and it's the new API on mobile devices (and only) supported since Android 4.3 but still only a few devices support it.
DX9 and DX11 will just bring support to the devices that have no/limmited/buggy OpenGL 2.0 support and just that.

The dx9 backend is working great (better then a crash xD) but it's currently only avalaible on xbox 360.
