As has been the case recently, this latest Wine 1.7 development release isn't too exciting. The official changes for Wine 1.7.8 just come down to the following:
- Updated version of the Mono package.
- Improvements in the BITS service implementation.
- Better data tables for Japanese vertical fonts support.
- Improved backtraces on recent Mac OS X versions.
- Various bug fixes.
So for Linux users it mostly comes down to having an updated version of Mono and fixing a total of 27 bugs. More details on Wine 1.7.8 can be found via the announcement at WineHQ.org.
