The second release candidate for the big Wine 3.0 release is now officially available and it comes with a bunch of bug fixes.
Since they are now in a code freeze, they are not working on new features, instead they are making sure it's as stable as possible. They noted 17 bugs fixed as of this release, here's a few highlights I picked:
- Fixed Fallout 4 crashing on startup
- Multiple games needed a "d3dx9_36.dll.D3DXGetShaderInputSemantics" including:
- Far Cry 2 & 3
- Faery: Legends of Avalon
- Civilization 4
- Of Orcs and Men
- Rocket League had fixes with AES encryption/ decryption
- Spellforce 2 had a regression solved
You might be wondering why Rocket League had fixes, despite it being native on Linux. Even games that have a native version can still help Wine improve by getting the Windows version working. Only mentioning this, as sometimes people ask why in our comments.
