Wine 3.0 RC3 is now available, brings even more bug fixes

Posted by , | Views: 8,626

The latest release candidate of Wine has kept on quashing bugs as version 3.0 shapes up for release sometime soon.

There’s not much that’s eye-catching in this release, as this is a bug fix release and is otherwise subject to a code freeze. Nonetheless, there’s a few fixes for games and other programs that should interest some people. Here’s a few game-related fixes that made it in:

  • Regression in Warframe - Crash when Updating user information (Usually when ending a mission).
  • regression in Age of Empires 2: ingame mostly black in recent wine version
  • Sonic & Knuckles Collection: arrow buttons are very narrow
  • Far Cry crashes when opening the save game menu
  • Wizardry 8 hangs when starting a new game or loading a saved game

Wine 3.0 is set to be a big release, with Direct3D 11 support, among other things. It’s exciting to see how far along Wine development has come in recent years as it’s an important tool since a lot of programs will never be ported to non-Windows platforms (or even to newer versions of Windows).

If you’re curious to see the other changes in this RC, check out the complete patch notes here.

I'm excited for this monumental 3.0 release. We've been waiting a long time for D3D11 support.

Too many linux games I didn't play through yet to bother with wine .

Just download an older version of wine that supports it. You don't have to always use the latest release, or even the same one for all your games. Or did I misunderstand?

Did anyone try Elite: Dangerous yet?

It feels like to me we are finally starting to catch up with Microsoft as at least for now all games that are releasing will be using D3D11 for the most part, hopefully, Vulkan becomes more popular than D3D12, but I doubt it personally.

Not with Microsoft continuing to dominate the home computer market and throwing its considerable weight behind DX12.
