Software Update: Wine 1.1.44

Wine’s usual biweekly development build was released on Friday. Wine, regular visitors to the Meuktracker know by now, 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. Wine is contributed by a large group of developers, which is why it was decided to release a new build every two weeks, instead of waiting for a number of new features to be ready. The database with applications running under Wine, with or without some minor tweaks, contains 14,283 titles at the time of writing, which is 161 more than at the time of version 1.1.43. Below you will find what has been changed and improved in this release:

What’s new in this release:

  • Many more new icons.
  • Support for 32-bit prefixes with a 64-bit Wine.
  • Many additional msvcr80/90 functions.
  • Improvements to Bidi handling.
