Wine 7.16 Released, Compatibility Layer for Windows Applications – News Fast Delivery

Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a compatibility layer that can run Windows applications on a variety of POSIX-compliant operating systems (such as Linux, macOS, and BSD, etc.). Rather than mimicking internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, it translates Windows API calls into dynamic POSIX calls, freeing performance and other behavioral memory footprints, allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into the desktop.

Wine 7.16 has been officially released, and notable updates in this release include:

  • Wow64 support in X11 driver
  • Session storage in MSHTML
  • Unicode regular expression fix in MSXML
  • IME improvements in edit controls
  • Various bug fixes
    • Wine uninstaller won’t start
    • postgresql installer 9.3 needs to return correct string length from fso.GetTempName
    • postgresql installer 9.3 needs to support default style parameters in WshShell.Run
    • amazon games app crashes in wine 7.0 rc-3 (winsock?)
