Another two weeks and another bottle of Wine has been opened. This Wine 6.11 development release pulls in an interesting patch too for Roblox.
I doubt Roblox needs much of an introduction. Sadly it's another game that doesn't support Linux and stopped working in Wine long ago - until now. Wine bug #39142 (Roblox Client/Server connection is dropped with error "This server has shut down.") is now solved with this commit. So the Roblox client should now work but keep in mind there's a number of caveats, some of which can be seen here.
What's new includes:
- Theming support in all builtin programs.
- All remaining CRT math functions imported from Musl.
- MP3 support requires libmpg123 also on macOS.
- Support for codepage 720 (Arabic).
They also noted a total of 33 bug fixes. Usual note: some bugs are old that were fixed previously but have seen recent re-testing, some genuinely were fixed recently. Windows game improvements include: Roblox as noted, Hogs of War, Might & Magic Clash of Heroes, Roller Coaster Rampage, Two Worlds Epic Edition, Amnesia: Rebirth, Starcraft Remastered, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Just Cause 4, Wizard101, Starcraft 2 and more.
