WINE 9.11 begins to prepare the ground for the new ARM era

WINE 9.11

Apple, which in many aspects prefers to be behind to release something more mature later, in others is usually the first to take the step. It's something it did with its latest Macs, computers with their own processors that now use ARM architecture. When Microsoft presented its latest innovations in the field of AI, it also presented new ARM equipment, and the global transition seems to have begun. For its part, WineHQ has taken some steps in this direction, since WINE 9.11 includes at least one new feature related to this architecture.

The list of notable new features in WINE 9.11 is just two points, three if we add the usual number of bug fixes. The first is that C++ exception handling has been added on ARM platforms, and the second is more improvements to DPI awareness support. As for numbers, this time they have entered 251 cambios and a list of 27 fixed bugs, which you have below.
