New Wine 5.6 Released

  If you like to play games on GNU/Linux, then Wine will be very good for you. Thanks to this level of compatibility, you can play a lot of games that work only on Windows. Wine is not an emulator; it converts Windows API calls to POSIX calls on the fly, while reducing the load on your computer. Over the past year, this project has developed so well that you can no longer return to Windows.


  The next Wine release was released with a number of improvements and bug fixes.

  What's new in this release:

  • Still more Media Foundation work.
  • Improvements to Active Directory LDAP support.
  • A few more modules converted to PE.
  • Improvements to gdb proxy mode.
  • Various bug fixes.

  In this release, 38 bugs were fixed. Some of them were fixed in previous releases of Wine, however, they were retested. Bug fixes for the following games: Cossacks II, Star Wars KOTOR II: The Sith Lords, Diablo 3, Dead Space (Steam version), Star Wars: The Old Republic, Panzer Corps 2, Magic The Gathering Online. Warframe launcher update bug fixes have also been added.
