Wine Logo The Wine Project development team has announced the release of the latest development branch release of Wine, version 1.3.6. 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.

According to the developers, Wine 1.3.6 addresses more than 60 bugs found in the previous release, which improved Shader Model 4 support, and features the addition of support for GStreamer filters and changes for installers with services. Other changes in the bi-weekly development snapshot include the mapping of standard cursors to native desktop cursors, various MSXML improvements and a decoder for TGA-format images. As with all development releases, use in production environments and on mission critical systems is not advised. Users testing the release are encouraged to provide feedback and report any bugs that they encounter.

Further information about the development preview, including a full list of changes and bug fixes, can be found in the official release announcement and in the short log. Wine 1.3.6 is available to download from one of the project's mirrors and documentation is provided. The latest stable release is version 1.2.1, a bug fix update to the 1.2 branch from mid-October.

Wine source code is available from SourceForge and is licensed under the LGPL. The Wine Project is sponsored by CodeWeavers, which also shares its own code updates with the Project.
