Posted by , | Views: 5,882

I know, that pun attempt hurt my head too. You try and keep this going for months! Today, the Wine team have put out the Wine 4.9 development release as expected with new features and assorted bug fixes.

Release highlights:

  • Initial support for installing Plug and Play drivers.
  • Support for building 16-bit modules in PE format.
  • A lot of code moved to the new KernelBase DLL.
  • Various game controller fixes.
  • Use higher performance system clocks if available.

As for bug fixes, this time around they noted 24 now marked as solved. As per usual, some may be bugs fixed in previous releases only now being found. These include World of Tanks, Osmos, Grand Prix Legends, Spellforce 3, Rogue Squadron 3D and more.

You can see the full release notes here.

So much Wine is going to ferment the site into the Planet of the Grapes.

You should file a bug report on the wine tracker, asking for less frequent releases or releasing puns along with new versions to alleviate the pun pressure on news outlets.

I'm no expert, but I'm old so I remember the term. So, back in the day, if you had peripherals for your computer you'd have to have a driver for it; peripherals often came with CDs that had a driver for you to install. The internet was barely a thing and didn't have that kind of useful stuff on it--or a little later, it did, somewhere, but actually finding it would be a massive pain. I believe plug-and-play was Windows' marketing term for their first attempt to have pre-built drivers for various stuff already in the OS so you could plug in a thing and have it supposedly Just Work. Something like that. This was back in the Windows 95/98/like that era.

If we assume that, I guess they might be talking about some very odd/specific peripherals that still to this day require a driver installation of some kind.

Oh please, support OSS instead, LibreOffice is a very nice MS Office replacement.
