By - | Views: 18,045

Wine, the translations layer that allows Windows apps and games to run on other operating systems, that forms part of Steam Play Proton has version 8.3 out now.

The main highlights of Wine 8.3 include:

  • Support for the Low Fragmentation Heap.
  • Smard card support using PCSC-Lite.
  • Bundled Zydis library for more correct disassembly.
  • Various bug fixes.

29 bugs were noted to be solved including issues for the likes of Path of Exile, Sacred, Escape from Tarkov, Saints Row: The Third and various miscellaneous expected fixes for other parts of Wine.

ICYMI: Wayland driver for Wine is getting closer. Plus D8VK is an in-progress implementation of Direct3D 8 for DXVK.

This is a good thing to celebrate. So I must go to a local booze shop and get a couple Wine bottles. After I've drank 'em it's a very good idea to call to local hospital and have my stomach flushed! A nice little day program! And hopefully there will be no hangover afterwards But wine is developing fast. Almost every week there's an update. Good work!keep it going!
