Thus, after the first and the second of last week, a few hours ago he launched WINE 6.0-rc3.

In this phase, there are news, but they do not even mention a list with the most outstanding, since it has reached the freezing of functions and they have begun to focus their efforts on polish the software with a view to the release of the stable version. Still, they do mention 19 fixes and a total of 64 changes. You do not have to be a lynx to see that there are many fewer than the hundreds that are introduced in other weeks, but what has been said is because we are already in the freezing phase.
