Written by Michael Larabel in WINE on 29 October 2010 at 03:39 PM EDT. 3 Comments
Wine 1.3.5 came two weeks ago with better Shader Model 4.0 support for Windows applications/games and the ability to use the CUPS print server directly, among other features, while today Wine 1.3.6 has been released with support for more features.

The highlights for the Wine 1.3.6 release include support for GStreamer filters, mapping of standard cursors to the native desktop cursors, improved support for installers with services, many MSXML improvements, and a decoder for TGA images. Of course, there's also the usual translation updates and bug-fixing activity too during the past two weeks.

The list of bugs fixed by Wine 1.3.6 along with various download links for this development snapshot can obtain the release announcement at WineHQ.org. For those wanting to stick to a tested and stable release, Wine 1.2.1 is the latest. There's also CrossOver 9.2 (along with CrossOver Games 9.2) that was released one week ago for those interested in professional support that also ends up benefiting Wine's development as well.
