Wine continues to mature with Wine 3.0 RC6

Posted by , | Views: 6,034

The big Wine 3.0 is inching ever closer with the release of the sixth release candidate today with bug fixes.

Since Wine is currently in a code-freeze, no new features are being pulled in so they can make the 3.0 release as stable as possible, which means it's not too exciting. Still, every software needs to go through a period of stability to ensure a solid foundation to continue improving features.

Here's what they noted as fixed:

  • 3864  RedMon v1.7/1.9 (Redirection Port Monitor) fails to install/run
  • 36441  joy.cpl crashes when PS4 Gamepad connected via Bluetooth
  • 38671  valgrind shows an uninitialized write in dlls/advapi32/tests/security.c (test_CreateDirectoryA)
  • 38799  RaidCall 7.x crashes when joining a group/trying to test sound
  • 40254  mshtml:script test regression (timeout)
  • 40653  Castle of Illusion start on black screen and crash
  • 42588  Vietcong - graphics glitches since Wine 2.1
  • 43308  valgrind shows an uninitialized write in dlls/advapi32/tests/security.c (test_AddMandatoryAce)
  • 43309  valgrind shows an uninitialized write in dlls/advapi32/tests/security.c (test_token_security_descriptor)
  • 43310  valgrind shows several definite leaks in dlls/advapi32/tests/security.c
  • 43654  Arx Fatalis: Candlelight / Porch light leaks through the walls
  • 44175  stack corruption and crash with OpenSSH port
  • 44286  Regression: Default value in dropdown list is no longer select
  • 44332  Powerpoint 2007/2010 slideshow encounters an "unexpected error" trying to move past first slide

I still expected the main Wine 3.0 release to be this month.

Added this communication about release candidate from alexander julliard

https://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-devel/2018-January/121232.html

QuoteFolks,

I think that at this point, we have fixed most of the bugs that could be fixed during code freeze, so it looks like rc6 is going to be the last rc.

Please test it to confirm that there are no last minute issues.

Unless something major comes up, I'm planning to release the final 3.0
in a few days (as soon as I'm done writing the release notes...)

Thank you all for your work!

Before the official 3.0 release the wine developers should try and fix some of the outstanding audio bugs. That was the biggest issue that I had with wine last year. I compiled a list.

Yeah, League of Legends also has weird crackling/poping with ingame sound, otherwise it works great.

I think I’ve posted it a couple times before, but just in case it may help, I solved crackling sound issues in Life is Strange and Grid Autosport by adding this line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf:
options snd-hda-intel bdl_pos_adj=64
My Z97 mobo has an ALC1150 chip. dmesg used to show "IRQ timing workaround is activated for card #0. Suggest a bigger bdl_pos_adj".

It's been ages since I bought a Windows game to play with Wine, thanks to your video I went ahead and bought both NecroVisioN games.

May I ask how did you turn off the Vsync in this game? There's no in game setting or in the game's Bin/config.ini file either.

Hello Mrdeathjr,
did you try to play LA NOIRE with Wine? I have the Steam version and it's impossible to play this game for me.
