Software Update: Wine 1.7.23

A new development build of Wine has been released with version number 1.7.23. Wine is an open source implementation of the Windows API. The software makes it possible to run DOS and Windows programs on Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris, among others. A large group of developers contribute to Wine and it has been decided to release a new so-called development version every two weeks, instead of waiting for a number of new functions to be ready. A stable edition is published a few times a year. The database with applications that work under Wine, with or without the help of minor adjustments, contains exactly 21,469 titles at the time of writing. Below you will find what has been changed and improved in this release.

What’s new in this release:

  • Better support for files drag & drop.
  • Improvements to the HTTP cookie management.
  • Initial support for 64-bit Android builds.
  • Fixes to crypto certificate management.
