Like every two weeks, and with the Swiss precision that characterizes it, WineHQ has re-launched a development version of its software to run Windows applications on other operating systems, such as those based on Linux, which is the central theme of LxA. The ones who may not be so punctual are us, but they they gave us WINE 6.10 yesterday Friday afternoon, the same day and at the same time as always.
As always, WineHQ has mentioned only a few changes as the most important, among which I would highlight that the Mono engine has been updated to version 6.2.0. For the rest, they have corrected 25 errors and introduced a total of 323 changes. Below you have the small list of novelties that WineHQ considers to be the jewel in the crown of WINE 6.10.
WINE 6.10 highlights
- Mono engine updated to version 6.2.0, with upstream updates.
- The shell folder naming scheme follows the recent Windows one.
- WinePulse library converted to PE.
- More Musl math functions in the C runtime.
- Various bug fixes.
Interested users can now install WINE 6.10 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 6.11, and it will almost certainly arrive next Friday, June 18, although we may publish it a little later. Among what you will introduce, the only thing we can assure you is that will come with hundreds of small improvements and corrections as usual, although they can also continue to improve what is already present.
