Juicy like the good stuff, Wine 4.0 RC7 is out with a delightful aroma

Posted by , | Views: 3,751

No need to worry about a sour aftertaste here, we're of course talking about the wonderful software and not the tasty liquid.

As usual, they're in bug-fix mode while they attempt to make the best version of Wine they can and so no super huge features made it in.

They noted 13 bug fixes this time:

  20728  Multiple video players crash when opening audio or video file (MPC-HC v1.6.5, PotPlayer 1.5.x)(FilterGraph_create releases/destroys controlling IUnknown)
  26369  A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda 1.x (.NET 2.0, XNA 3.1 game) crashes during intro ('quartz' FilterGraph2_Connect must translate HRESULT of failures more correctly)
  29461  BurnPlot (VB6 app) fails to start, complaining with "Run-time error '438'" (WshShell3 'SpecialFolders' collection 'item' method invocation fails)
  34884  Touhou Danmakufu 0.12m's font becomes distorted
  35573  gdi32:fonts test_stock_fonts() fails on Windows 7 in the Japanese and Hebrew locales
  36082  Cannot Read Text In "Question" Boxes On Microsoft Money 2005 Installation
  36084  Microsoft Money 2005 Window Going "Black" After Certain Menu Operations
  43211  NVIDIA GeForce Experience 3.x installer fails due to 'setupapi.SetupDiDeleteDeviceInfo' stub
  44796  Age of Empires II: The Conquerors is broken when CSMT is enabled
  45874  Secret Files 1-2: hardware mouse cursor corrupted
  46212  Multiple games have performance issues (Project CARS, NFS: Hot Pursuit (2010), Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage)
  46459  Secret Files 1-2, Ufo: Extraterrestrials: mouse cursor invisible when anti-aliasing and hardware mouse enabled
  46480  Invalid write of size 2 in ntoskrnl.exe/tests/ntoskrnl.c

I imagine when 4.0 is out and final, Steam Play will see an update to it. We haven't seen a Steam Play update since 3.16-6 in December about a month ago now. It might be a good idea to wait, to get all the fixes they can and then rebase onto a stable and modern version of Wine.

What? Were you expecting a pun? Wine not! I'm corked after a long day.

Comandante ÑoñardoHey, mrdeathjr! I am waiting for your Proton vs Native videos.

Difficult situation personally native is better and promote more this tech will be very bad for companies still make it native ports like as feral / vp and others

According before for now i dont offer this test, however if devs provide wine/dxvk based port can test without problem

Are VP's porting activities at all beneficial to the Linux gaming community, given their abysmal performance record?

Highly underperforming ports may give people a bad impression of Linux.

Will .wmv playback now work with Wine 4.0?

Proton 3.16-6 beta is bundled with Wine 3.16 and cutscenes of Darksiders Warmastered Edition do not play.
