Wine 1.2.1 fixes bugs
The Wine Project has announced the arrival of the first point update to the 1.2 branch of its Windows API implementation. Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) is free open source software that allows users to run Windows applications on Linux and Unix by providing its own native replacements for Windows DLLs.
Released last July, Wine 1.2 included more than 23,000 changes and featured support for 64-bit Windows applications on x86-64 processors, better standard dialogues and new graphics based on the Tango standard. Wine 1.2.1 is the first maintenance update for the stable 1.2 branch and while no new features are added, the release has more than 35 bug fixes and various translation updates.
More details about the release, including a full list of bugs fixed, can be found in the official release announcement. Wine 1.2.1 is available to download from one of the project's mirrors and documentation is provided. Wine source code is available from SourceForge and is licensed under the LGPL. The latest development branch of Wine building towards a future stable 1.4 release is version 1.3.4, from early October, which added support for the ARM architecture.
