WINE 9.9 introduces improvements in ARM and just over 200 changes

WINE 9.9

WineHQ launched a few hours ago a new development version of its software to run Windows applications on other operating systems. What we can now download and use is WINE 9.9, a launch with a list of new features with a number of changes that falls within the "new media." And the thing is that a long time ago we used to see updates with more than 500-600 tweaks, but now it is difficult to reach 300. A detail without too much importance that, when looked at closely, could mean that the software is more mature and requires less attention.

Among what WineHQ has highlighted from this release, WINE 9.9 has arrived with support for the new WoW64 mode in ODBC, improved CPU detection on ARM platforms and a number of obsolete functions have been eliminated in WineD3D, which is joined by the usual point of several bug fixes. He total number of changes amounts to 236, and the number of errors rises to 38, those in the following list.
