Just before the weekend hits you in the face like a bad hangover when you realise it's Monday already, there's another bottle of Wine ready for you.

Of course, we're not talking about the tasty liquid! Put down the glass, it's the other kind of Wine. The one used to run your fancy Windows programs and games on Linux. Doing their usual thing, developer Alexandre Julliard announced that the Wine 4.0 Release Candidate 2 is officially out the door today.

While this release is nothing spectacular it is an important one, the more bugs they're able to tick off the list the better the 4.0 release will be for more people to use it.

With that said, there's no new features and only 11 bugs noted as sorted for this release candidate:

  19184  File copying fails during installation of Mordor
  23282  SpeQ: Wrong coded linefeed
  25734  Magic: The Gathering Battlegrounds trial hangs upon startup
  36430  valgrind shows a possible leak in shell32/tests/autocomplete.c
  39736  Prototype 2 crashes
  41992  total commander, copy dialog - Esc key not working
  43178  Prototype regression
  43676  Hitman(TM) requires session_set_option - option 84
  44229  Visual C++ 1.51 can't add files to project (GetOpenFileName16() doesn't support custom templates or hooks)
  46231  Button tests for ideal size fail on Arabic locale on Windows
  46270  ReactOS explorer.exe can't delete objects (use-after free caused by incorrect free in STGMEDIUM_Release())

Bugs like this one are so weird. I'm surprised that anyone even found it, but these little things probably make wine development very annoying.

Managed to get an error trying out isaac rebirth on wine-staging. Do they accept wine-staging bug reports or just regular wine?

I wonder if wine works with mod organizer 2 and latest nexus now. Before they more or less worked interface wise but the mounting of the files was just not happening.

You're really getting a lot of mileage out of that joke, aren't you Liam? But it's basically a GoL tradition now, so carry on old son.

They accept all. You just need to specify it when reporting a bug , even you can specify a version if it was working on an older build.

What did the grape say when it was crushed? Nothing, it just let out a little Wine.

There is a new option in staging tab called "Use ARB Shaders". What is that for?
