Software Update: Wine 1.1.3

Normally a new build of Wine comes out every two weeks. This time, however, four weeks have passed, something that is not mentioned on Wine’s website. 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 that work under Wine now contains more than 10,000 titles that can run without problems or with a few minor adjustments. Here’s what’s changed in this release:

What’s new in version 1.1.3:

  • Beginnings or ddraw overlay support.
  • Many more crypt32 functions.
  • Improved support for tables in Richedit.
  • Support for NETWM window maximization.
  • Many installer fixes.
  • Tweaks for better PulseAudio support.
