Wine Staging 2.18 is out and as usual it comes with a good bunch of fixes I'm sure many of you will appreciate.

Highlights:

  • Support for ECDSA certificate chains.
  • Vsync handling for d3d10/d3d11.
  • Various smaller bug fixes and improvements.

What they've done this time, is add support for "ECDSA certificate chain verification" which "fixes the login issue in Origin, the connectivity problems in Uplay, the non-working browser in Battle.net and many more applications". It's one of those wide-reaching bugs that's great to see squashed.

Also, the Wine Staging 2.18 release "improves the swap interval handling of Direct3D10/11 games and makes it possible to disable vsync".

On top of all that, they say they've fixed issues with Cuphead and Overwatch. For Overwatch, it seems it no longer needs some extra patches to work, it should just work on Wine Staging.

Stellar work as always from the Wine developers.

I'm really really impressed by all the progress Wine has been making recently. Can someone let me know when it's possible to play Planet Coaster? And maybe Fallout 4...

Water looks good in The Witcher 3:



For Mesa, you can use this freeze prevention patch.

Hmm... Wine team bringing me closer to ditching dual boot. Concentrate on the top 10 played games that linux can't play and I am completely on board.

The Hunter Classic now runs in Wine, for the first time as far as I'm aware. Has some visual issues but it runs! It was my favorite "just wander around and chill" game, I've been waiting forever for it to work, almost lost hope.

This is as exciting as it was last year to see mesamatrix.net fill in as MESA has grown up.

Wonderful work @all, keep the torch burning and kick some ass -- incredible achievement so far.

So the wine fix for the freeze bug is not in yet?

That's some great news. While I've steered away from using Wine, once I nuke my Windows 7 installation in the year 2020, there may be a game or two that I can't live without.

Some games that I can live without but would be nice to have:
PUBG
HotS
Skyrim (already beat it, but kinda want to play through it again)
Elder Scrolls Online
Guild Wars 2
Battlefield 4
Starcraft II

Out of those games, I've only been playing PUBG lately. While I would miss playing that with my friends, It's not a road block for me ditching Windows once it loses all support.
