Two weeks have passed since the release of the previous development version, which means rain, snow or storm, WineHQ already has another available. What they launched hours ago was another development version of their software to run Windows apps on other operating systems, more specifically WINE 5.22. Among the most outstanding novelties, the few that their developers usually mention as such, we have improvements in video playback.
This release has come with more changes than last week, more or less what is usual. Regarding errors, they have corrected 36, but they have introduced a total of 345 changes. If you want to see them all you have to go to the link that you have above these lines. What you have below is the highlight of WINE 5.22 according to WineHQ.
WINE 5.22 highlights
- C runtime libraries converted to PE.
- Use of fontconfig cache for faster startup.
- Video playback improvements.
- 3DES encryption support.
- Various bug fixes.
Interested users can now install WINE 5.22 from its source code, available in this y this other link, or from binaries that can be downloaded from here!. In the link from where we can download the binaries there is also information to add the official project repository to receive this and other future updates as soon as they are ready for systems like Ubuntu / Debian or Fedora, but there are also versions for Android and macOS .
The next development version will be WINE 5.23 and, if there are no surprises, which I dare to advance that will not happen seeing how punctual they are in WineHQ, it will arrive on December 4. Among the improvements that it will introduce, the only thing we can assure you is that will come with hundreds of small improvements and corrections as usual.
