Ah yes, one of my favourite days of the week. The day I get to unleash more glorious puns about Wine with another release now available for those of you wanting to run Windows games and applications on Linux.

Highlights of the 4.14 release:

  • New version of the Mono engine with upstream updates.
  • PE dlls no longer rely on the MinGW runtime.
  • Exception handling fixes on ARM64.
  • Various bug fixes.

As for bug fixes the usual applies: some are older bugs recently getting noticed and ticked off the list. Mentioned this time are 18 fixes in total including issues solved with World War Z, Star Citizen, Star Control Origins, The Sims and other miscellaneous bugs.

You can find the full release notes here.

The Wine team also recently announced the next WineConf, the Wine Project's annual conference. Taking place in Toronto, Canada between October 12th - 13th. You can see the full details on it here.

I heard through the grapevine that some people say I do a pour job at this pun business, I'll deal with such things on a case by case basis. *checks notes*, nope haven't used those before. I'll see myself out.

This wine version recognize geforce GTX 1660ti, thanks to kai krakow patch and have too more virtual memory work of remi bernon:

Quotentdll: Implement zero_bits parameter in virtual alloc functions.

Use alloc_area.limit field to limit the search in reserved areas to the
desired memory range, or call find_free_area to get a pointer to a free
memory region which matches the zero_bits constraint, then mmap it with
MAP_FIXED flag.

And d9vk still working:

Still hoping for the day more work goes into mfplat. It can be a nightmare with some games.

Yes, that would indeed be cool.
Is there already a good reliable alternative (winetricks-like) way to get full media foundation functionality into a prefix?

You can try these scripts from github

I think i used the 2nd one to get both Call of Cthulhu and The Sinking City to work, with some minor bugs but playable.

I'm pretty sure that Liam has reserved half an hour each week to come up with new Wine puns.

Huh. That spoonerizes beautifully: "Come for the pews, stay for the nuns".

It took me quite some time, but I succeeded based on your links with some extra work, thanks a lot!

Thanks for those, I had the first one but not the 2nd (which is what I need for Darksiders 1). Tried it over the weekend but hit a snag, a small issue on my end but definitely a good start.

Again, thanks!
