The Wine team are having a busy year once again, with the second development release for Wine 5.0 out as the bottle for Wine 4.2 is now open and ready to be passed around.
Here's what's new:
- Unicode string normalization support.
- Support for ECC cryptographic keys.
- Support for mixing 32/64-bit dlls in the load path.
- Futex-based implementations for more synchronization primitives.
- Various bug fixes.
This time around, they noted 60 bugs as fixed. The usual note applies here, some may be bugs actually solved in earlier versions of Wine that are only now being checked off the list. These bug fixes include improvements for Planetside 2, League of Legends, Elite Dangerous, StarCitizen and plenty more.
