WINE 7.10 includes more fixes than usual and goes up to Mono 7.3.0

WINE 7.10

Like every two weeks, and after v7.9, WineHQ He launched last night a new development version of its software to run Windows applications on other operating systems, this time WINE 7.10. For some it may be a minor update, but it does include something that greatly improves the user experience, to the point that it allows you to use some applications that would otherwise be impossible or unlikely. We're talking about the Mono engine, which allows apps that require the .NET Framework to run.

In addition, WineHQ mentions that 56 bugs have been fixed, which is about twice as many as it usually fixes, and a total of 379 changes. Once again, we have to remember those versions in which they introduced more than 600, but close to 400 is within the average, above I would say. Of all this, the highlight according to WineHQ is what we have next.

WINE 7.10 highlights

The highlight, without a doubt, is that the Mono engine has been updated to 7.3.0, but the project also mentions in its list that the driver for macOS has been moved to PE, a Unicode collation compatible with Windows and support for Wow64 in Secur32, a list that is completed by the fifth point in which various fixes are mentioned.

WINE 7.10 available from  this link, and I don't know whether to keep mentioning the second option because it never works. Now, out of curiosity and doing a job that does not correspond to me, I have accessed that server, I have eliminated the last parts and I have accessed those of WINE 6.x, which do work. So I think they post the second link as a placeholder, ie it doesn't work today, but it will in the future. Shit Happens. In the download page there is information on how to install this and other versions on operating systems such as Debian and Ubuntu, but it can also be installed on Android and macOS.

The next version will be a WINE 7.11 coming June 17. We don't know how many changes they will introduce in two weeks, but it should be a couple of hundred or more. And at least now it seems that we know what happens with the second link, although the explanation does not satisfy me.
