The Wine team have today announced another of their biweekly Wine development releases with Wine 5.11 out now.
What is Wine? A quick reminder for the newer Linux user: it's a compatibility layer that allows the running of Windows-only applications and games on Linux and other operating systems. It's one of the driving forces behind Steam Play Proton.
Highlights from the Wine 5.11 release include:
- Wine Mono engine updated to 5.1.0, with WpfGfx library support.
- More work on the separate Unix library for NTDLL.
- Beginnings of a NetIO kernel driver implementation.
- Initial support for the Print Ticket API.
- Removal of the obsolete 32-bit PowerPC architecture.
As for bug fixes this time they noted 57 solved. Some are old bugs getting ticked off the list after re-testing and some quite recently fixed. These include improvements for: Supreme Commander, Age of empires II HD, multiple issues solved for League of Legends, Battle.Net, some game crashing regressions from Wine 5.7 were improved, Star Trek Armada, Grand Theft Auto III and quite a few more.
