If you are not touring Chernobyl
this weekend but instead looking to test out some new software, version 1.1.42 of Wine has arrived just as expected. There's a few new features and other improvements to this free software project that allows you to run many Windows programs on non-Microsoft operating systems.
Highlights for Wine 1.1.42 include support for shared 32-bit and 64-bit setups, Dwarf debug information support for better back-traces, more standard actions supported in MSI binaries, support for TIFF image format in WinCodecs, multiple Direct3D improvements, and shell fixes for better Internet Explorer support. There's also the usual variety of bug fixes going on in the Wine 1.1.42 release.
The complete change-log and other details on this latest bi-weekly development release of Wine can be found at WineHQ.org
