It's your time to Wine with the 6.7 release out now

By - | Views: 13,176

It's Friday and it's been two weeks so that can only mean one thing! We get to have a little Wine, as a treat.

We are of course as always talking about the open source compatibility layer Wine, with the Wine 6.7 development release out now. For newer readers and Linux users here's a refresher - Wine is a compatibility layer built for operating systems like Linux, macOS and BSD. The idea is to allow other platforms to run games and applications only built and supported for Windows. It's also part of what makes up Steam Play Proton. Once a year or so, a new stable release is made.

Here's the highlights of Wine 6.7:

  • NetApi32, WLDAP32, and Kerberos libraries converted to PE.
  • More Media Foundation work.
  • ES6 JavaScript mode.
  • Improved WOW64 file system redirection.
  • More Plug & Play driver support.
  • Keyboard raw input device.

Also of note are 44 bugs marked as solved. As per usual: some are bugs being fixed now, some were fixed a while ago and recently got noticed as actually being sorted. Some of the improved items include: multiple Daedalic games, EA Origin installer, Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, BioShock Remastered, Legends of Runeterra and more.

For the full bottle ingredients see the release notes.

QuoteHello @User, it looks like this game would benefit from support for Media Foundation maturing.

Looks like some people like theirs bottled, others boxed. Anyway you take it I guess it's grape fun to hack on Wine!
