WINE 7.6 arrives with the Mono 7.2.0 engine

WINE 7.6

As expected, after software v7.5, WineHQ launched a few hours ago WINE 7.6. Once again, we have to remember that this is a development version, and that the stable versions come out only once a year, to add the maintenance ones. In this phase, the team of developers and collaborators introduce hundreds of changes, although the number can vary from one release to another, but the truth is that there have been weeks with so many changes that now the average seems little to us.

In total 17 bugs have been corrected, but the complete list of changes amounts to 311. More than 300 changes is within the average, but having seen Eric Pouech take care of a couple of hundred by himself, and that among the rest of the developers the number of 600 has been exceeded, because mathematics does not lie, and now, although on average, we are with figures that remain in the middle of those record weeks.

WINE 7.6 highlights

Of all the changes, we could dive right in and name one for ourselves, but even half of the 600+, reading hundreds of points can be tedious. What WineHQ mentions as most notable is that the engine Mono has been updated to version 7.2.0, more progress has been made in the PE conversion of the graphics drivers, language support has been added using the CLDR-based database, and the usual point of various bug fixes.

WINE 7.6 available from  this link , and WineHQ also provides another one that never works; I honestly don't know how anyone figures this out. 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 7.7 coming on April 22. We don't know what or how many changes there will be, but it seems that we are back to normal, so it is likely that they will introduce between 200 and 400.
