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.
