The latest and greatest in fine Wine [Official Site] is out today with Wine 3.14 filled with features and the usual bug fixes including support for DXTn texture decompression.

Their feature highlights for this version:

  • Support for DXTn texture decompression (S3TC).
  • Deferral support for MSI install actions.
  • Support for Japanese keyboard in DirectInput.
  • More improvements in the standard Task Dialog.
  • A few more icons in Shell32.

They also noted 36 bug fixes. The usual reminder applies here, not all bugs marked as solved were fixed by this release. Some are old bugs that were fixed some time ago and only now noticed. Notably, they fixed issues with the Battle.net launcher, Cube World, multiple games were crashing with CSMT enabled, Wargaming Game Center had a fix and more.

See the release announcement here.

A good dose of wine - spiked with Gabe Newell's special brew:steamos would do good in the future! We're living interesting times! I really hope that wine is part of valve's plans to get more players to change their os from win10 into our beloved OS!Long live Linux! But of course it's still a big job. But I'm sensing a change in air....

I've just installed wine after purging my old copy, and following the instructions to put the right repo on and install wine stable. And I now am the proud owner of - Wine 3.02. Also had to fix the steam can't download bug too. Am I missing something? What's the recommended repo these days?

What is the point of implementing s3tc in wine if it's present in virtually every driver, by the way?

Pardon the offtopic, but I immediately imagined your avatar saying something like "dear sir, i'd like to kindly request that you provide Linux support for your game".

Some games ask Direct3D to decompress the texture, touch it up a bit, and then send it to the driver. Don't ask me why, but here's an example.
