Wine 4.7 continues the development towards Wine 5.0 with another of their biweekly releases now available.
What's new and improved:
- Support for builtin libraries in PE format even on Unix.
- Updated version of the Mono engine.
- More implementation of the Debug Engine DLL.
- Support for the Command Link standard control.
- Improved Edit control sizing in CJK locales.
- Various bug fixes.
For the bug fixes, they noted 34 now marked as solved. As always, some may be older bugs being re-tested that were fixed previously. Issues were solved with Star Wars The Old Republic, Watch_Dogs, SpellForce 3, Rockstar Games Social Club, Sniper Elite V2, Sniper Elite 3 and more including issues solved that affected multiple games and applications.

As always, I continue to be impressed by the incredible work everyone hacking away at Wine are able to achieve. The task they have is a monumental one and it's not easy but lots of people appreciate it, even more so now since it's part of Steam Play which has helped to essentially validate all their effort.
I was going to give up on writing puns in the headlines, but I like giving you reasons to Wine.
