The Wine team today announced the released of Wine 5.14, the next development release on the long road to Wine 6.0.
If you're curious on what Wine is: it's the constantly improving 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. Helping you to get whatever you need done on Linux, or perhaps so you don't have to give up that favourite game.
The short highlights of Wine 5.14 include:
- More restructuration of the console support.
- Initial version of the Webdings font.
- Beginnings of PE conversion of the MSVCRT libraries.
On the subject of bug fixes, they only checked off 26 this time. Some freshly fixed, some sorted a while ago. These bug fixes include issues solved for Battle.net, Oblivion, Godot Engine, Diablo III, StarCraft: Brood War and more. It's quite amusing to see Webdings make it in, considering it's been around since the 90s.
