Wine 7.17 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 7.17 has been officially released, and notable updates in this release include:

  • Support for High Unicode character plane mapping in DirectWrite
  • Some work to support Wow64 in Vulkan driver
  • Various bug fixes
    • In Wine 7.16, UI rendering for several applications (7-Zip, WinRAR, foobar2000, built-in applications) fails at non-default DPI.
    • msys2 installer fails to check disk space
    • Visual Studio Community 2022 installer crashes when trying to open
    • winedevice.exe exits with failure when building with GCC
    • Wizard101 fails to load in 7.15
