Wine development team released today the third release candidate of upcoming stable version 1.8
Because at the moment Wine source code is in feature freeze, no new capabilities were added this time. Only 40 bugfixes were introduced.

To learn more about this release pleas visit this announcement.

The source code for this release is available here:

To get the most recent changes, a git repository is a good starting point.

Binary packages should be available for a download as soon as the build process is finished.

Quoting: tuubiWhat's wrong with this one? It has "official wine builds" of 1.8 rc3 for all Ubuntu releases starting with Trusty and even one for 12.04 (Precise). I rarely use wine for anything but these packages seem to install and work just fine, at least on Mint 17.

Is that actually the official one? If so, they should really update their site.

Before only needs limit pixel shader and vertex shader to 3 but now is needed put this libraries in winecfg as disabled : d3d10, d3d10core and d3d11 (is possible affect farcry 3 blood dragon too)

And minimum fps up around 5 to 10fps depending scene without forget sound improves (pulse audio support)
