The Wine 4.15 development release is out now

Posted by , | Views: 8,742

What's a Friday without a little Wine? Thankfully today we don't have to find out as the Wine 4.15 development release is now out.

Release highlights:

  • Initial implementation of the HTTP service.
  • Stack unwinding support on ARM64.
  • Better multi-monitor support on macOS.
  • RichEdit control optimizations.
  • Various bug fixes.

For the bugs fixed this time around they marked 28 off their list. Some may be older bugs seeing a retest that were fixed in a previous release. Bugs included issues fixed with Dragon Age: Origins, Titanfall 2, Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, a noted fix for BattlEye and so on.

You can find the full release notes for Wine 4.15 here.

As a reminder, Wine is also one part of Steam Play (Proton) which currently uses Wine 4.11. When each new release of the Wine project is pulled in, it should hopefully increase compatibility with games quite a bit. Valve and CodeWeavers usually wait a good while between releases before updating.

" Wine is part of Steam Play (Proton) "
actually, wine is an stand alone project but its also used by proton, the way you wrote this sentence make its look like its the opposite

I don't agree there, its a fact. It is part of Steam Play Proton. It's about context and the following text explained it more. You can take any single sentence without the rest of the text from a lot of places and say they mean something different..

Either way I've done a really small adjustment.

Hi Diego, and welcome.

Apt will update anything you install from the distribution repositories or ppa archives. So, if you install something with "apt install", you can update them with "apt update" and then "apt upgrade". Although if you're new to this, I suggest using the graphical update manager application of whichever Debian-based distribution you're running.

You'll have to manually update to new major versions of Nvidia drivers, as a normal update will only consider new point releases for stability reasons. (Different major versions are separate packages.) But again, consider using the driver manager GUI if you're on Ubuntu or Mint.

Steam will handle Proton for you as it's not a system package. I think Lutris will also take care of installing Wine and other "runners" as needed, so no need to worry about installing and updating Wine, unless you run it directly. If you do need Wine installed system-wide though, you'd better get it from the official winehq debian/ubuntu package repository as that will let your package manager handle updates.
