Wine 5.13 development release is up, here's the highlights

By - | Views: 13,270

The Wine team have produced another development release of the Windows compatibility layer with Wine 5.13 going up on July 17.

What is Wine, apart from a tasty liquid that you should drink responsibly? 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

Here's the highlights of what's new:

  • Re-mapping of INI files to the registry.
  • System call thunks in NTDLL.
  • Reimplementation of floating point numbers printing.
  • Beginnings of a restructuration of the console support. 

On the subject of bug fixes, in total they mentioned 22 solved for this release. Some old that were re-tested and some new. These include issues fixed for: Dungeon Siege 1 & 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, Battle.net, Mass Effect: Andromeda and more.

See the full notes on the release announcement.

The wine puns finally exhausted! I just drunk a glass of wine to celebrate this release. Hope it gets integrated into proton soon.

There is a bar outside of my house, where I can go and get as drunk as I like. I must celebrate this happy occasion and order a barrel of wine from there. Hopefully this drinking party will end a week later...Nevertheless Good job from Wine team - again

Tapped out, I guess. Towards the end he was scraping the bottom of the barrel rather.

For those that don't closely track wine, the "System call thunks in NTDLL" is really important. This is a stepping stone to supporting a lot of different anti-cheat mechanisms.
