The hackers working away on the Wine compatibility layer for running Windows games and apps on Linux tagged a new development release with Wine 5.21.

In terms of new highlighted features, here's what they said is new:

  • GDI32 library converted to PE.
  • More fixes for windowless RichEdit.
  • A number of timezone updates.

Small when just looking at that, but as always that only shows off one side of it. They also noted 24 bugs fixed across the likes of: Fallout 76, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Mu Online, Path of Exile, League of Legends, GOG Galaxy and more.

One other fix tagged as of this release was also quite interesting, with developer Georg Lehmann implementing support for VK_EXT_debug_marker. This newly hooked up extension support with Wine should hopefully allow people working on it to do a little extra debugging, with the likes of DXVK and Wine.

You can find the Wine 5.21 release announcement here.

Additionally, Wine Staging 5.21 is also now available which is the area where lots of extra patches are available across various areas but not yet ready to be pulled into Wine proper.
