Wine 2.0-rc6 released, should be the last one before a stable release

By - | Views: 6,128
Wine 2.0-rc6 is now available and it brings in another 21 bug fixes which should make this a seriously stable release. It has no new features, as they are in a code freeze.

It's fantastic that the Wine developers have put so much effort into making the big 2.0 release as stable as can be. Six release candidates with plenty of bugs fixed in each one, so a lot of work has gone into it.

This time it fixes issues with the launcher, 3DMark11 installer and more. You can see the release announcement here.

Things should seriously heat up in the next development cycle, as we expect more DirectX to get hammered out so that games like Overwatch will work. Article taken from
