Wine 0.9.54 Released!


It makes me happy inside every time I see a new release of Wine. For all those who do not know what Wine is, they give a fairly good example over at their Headquarters;

“Think of Wine as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris.”

This release has the following main fixes;

  • Photoshop CS/CS2 should now work, please help us testing it.
  • A number of RPC fixes.
  • Various improvements to the debugger support.
  • Lots of bug fixes.

You can build it from source here or download a package for your flavor over here. Keep in mind that at the time of release, not all packages are built.
