Wine Staging 2.19 is now available with more D3D11 work

By - | Views: 12,051

Wine Staging 2.19 has been officially announced today, although it seems like a quieter release compared to the past releases.

Here's whats new:

  • Support for depth bias clamping in d3d11.
  • Support for verifying RSA signatures using bcrypt.
  • Various bug fixes and improvements.

 They don't note anything else, apart from the stuff pulled in from the main Wine development builds.

It's likely some of the main contributors had a little break, or some other features are taking longer. I wouldn't be surprised if they had a little break, as they've been knocking out code fast and Wine has come along incredibly in the last year.

Quoting: GuestOk, I have a question. Since I am returning to Ubuntu after about 8-9 years, I feel like a little noob atm. How can I install Wine staging? They don't seem to have an official repo for 17.10?

(Sorry if it is obvious, but Manjaro and AUR made me a little lazy.)

Thanks!

I don't use Ubuntu but I guess this should do https://wine-staging.com/installation.html#distro_ubuntu

I personally abuse PlayOnLinux to install various wine versions if I feel like testing something. I don't generally use the install scripts though.

Quoting: GuestThis is what I tried, but when I wanted to updated sources.list, I got this message:

"E: The repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu artful Release' does not have a Release file."

I checked the url, and they don't have a repo for this version.

They haven't added an artful build to their repo yet, but the zesty version works fine for me. Just edit your sources.list file and change artful to zesty on the wine entry.

Change this
deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ artful main #WineHQ
into this
deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ zesty main #WineHQ

Don't forget to change it back to artful once they add that to their repo.

In this version, Batman: Arkham Knight launches in-game. It's just as glitchy as The Witcher 3 was 6 months ago but it now runs!

Current Wine master has some breaking changes that will require refactoring for Wine staging. For instance for interpolation modifiers patch.

Anyone managed to install the 32bit version via PlayOnLinux? It works for 64bit, but for 32bit it complaints that the file could not be found, even though it shows up in the selection just fine.

I did install it yesterday without any issue. Might be a temporary server issue or something.
