Wine 2.22 is now officially available as the latest development release on the road to the official Wine 3.0 release.

Here's the highlights of what's new:

  • Source selection dialog for scanners.
  • Improvements in ARM64 support.
  • Float audio formats with more than 2 channels in XAudio.
  • Fixes for DLL injection support.
  • Input methods improvements.
  • Various bug fixes.

In terms of bug fixes, they noted that a total of 14 bugs have been closed. The Witcher 3 had an issue with intro videos, which has been fixed. Skyrim had an issue loading the "Skyrim Script Extender", which was solved. There was also an issue with Mafia III, Daylight that was solved. There's more too, but not all game related.

I keep saying it, but I'm always incredibly impressed by what the Wine developers are able to do.

Not fully related to Wine 2.22 but I updated yesterday to Staging 2.21 and since then Origin does not work for me and The Witcher 3 doesn't even start. If I try to run it from the shell I get this output. Don't really understand it, but will look into it as soon as I can:

I did not knew, there's a 2.21 staging; on their news page, 2.19 is the last version.
Is there a change-log somewhere from this version?

I do not use the vanilla-version; much games work better with wine-staging.

For some reason, they didn't update their site for the two last releases of wine-staging, but you can see the latest releases marked on their github where you can also check what each commit did (no overall changelog though)

QuoteThe Witcher 3 had an issue with intro videos, which has been fixed

That's actually the same fix as:

QuoteFloat audio formats with more than 2 channels in XAudio.

It was already in Wine staging, just made its way in Wine proper now.

Are you trying to play TW3 through Origin??? Don't. DRM-free version works and starts without any issues.

Oh gosh, no! hahaha. Sorry for the poor explanation. Origin didn't work when I was trying to play Mass Effect and then separately The Witcher 3 didn't either playing the standalone GOG version.

I end up formatting the whole computer. Tinkering with the system for the last two days I realised that some native games had stopped working as well, reinstalling them didn't work... a bit of a mess. I guess at some point I did something that broke libraries and dependencies. As for Wine, I had installed Children of the Zodiarcs, TW3, Mass Effect and FFIX all in a working state but Children of the Zodiarcs. When I realised TW3 would not work I checked all the other and none worked but Cof Zodiarcs hahaha.

Will try again this week and see what happens.
