Software Update: Wine 1.1.22

Every other week on Friday, a new development build of Wine is ready and it is again this time. Wine is an open source implementation of the Windows API. This makes it possible to run DOS and Windows programs on Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X, among others. The database with applications running under Wine, with or without some minor tweaks, there are 12,010 titles at the time of writing, which is 204 fewer than two weeks ago. A decrease for the second time in a row, so probably the broom is being run through the database at this point. Below are the changes and improvements made in this release:

What’s new in this release:

  • More improvements to OLE copy/paste.
  • Beginnings of x86_64 exception handling.
  • Direct3D locking fixes.
  • ARB shader improvements.
  • Better OpenGL pixel format support.
