Wine 1.7.9 is released just now! Altough my primairy focus is not Wineskin anymore but Crossover, Wine is still the sourcecode where it is all about and will be iplanted in Crossover soon as well. And if you have of games and want to see if there are some improvements with the latest WineEngine then this news might be worthwhile. The wine version will be buildt in an engine and will be available in “Winery“. Winery is a program where you can build wrappers with, and is available on the Wineskin website. I used Winery to buildt all my wrappers for this website. Because the new Wine is just released, the engine itself is not available yet in Winery, but will be added soon by Doh123 (Wineskin developer). here is quite some things done in this release especially by Stefan Dorsinger to fix memory issues in Wine. Besides that there are some D3D and Mac driver improvements. See more details below and on Winehq.

What’s new in this release:

  • Improved window moving/resizing in the Mac driver.
