Wine 3.2 has been officially releasedThis is the second major update since the new Wine 3.2 branch came out and it comes with some interesting improvements that many of the users who use this compatibility layer will surely appreciate greatly. In case someone new to this field reads us, explain that Wine is a software that allows us to install native Microsoft Windows software on Unix-like systems such as GNU / Linux, macOS and also on Solaris, FreeBSD, etc., and from this new 3.0 branch also on Android ...

That said, I return with the news and new features that you can find in this Wine 3.2 version, and it is that the developers have worked intensely so that we can enjoy a new implementation of the user controls for ComCtl32 v6, and a good job on Direct3D, specifically to support multisample textures for graphics generated with this Microsoft API. Added to the existing improvements is this one for the field of graphics and video games.

Another of the improvements that stands out the most is the support for gamepads HID, something that many users missed before and is now available. Although they are not the only improvements, we can also see better support for events in MSHTML and various bug fixes that had arisen with previous versions. Specifically, 34 bugs detected in Wine have been eliminated, among which are the improvements to run Indiana JOnes, The Emperor's Tomb, The Witness, Hearthstone, System Shock and other titles.

And there is more, such as some code optimizations that have been completed and a thinning of the code due to the fact that much of it has been removed outdated code that was for DOS. If you want to download Wine 3.2 or simply see more details of the project, you can visit the official website, from there you can download packages for the different distros, the source code and also for Android and other operating systems ...
