While development in the Wine 1.3 unstable series is going along nicely for the eventual stable release of Wine 1.4, the Wine developers today have announced the stable 1.2.2 update for existing Wine 1.2 users. Wine 1.2.0 was released this past July and then just in October there was Wine 1.2.1 to bring a bunch of bug-fixes. Now just in time for the holidays, there is Wine 1.2.2 to improve the Window application/gaming experience on Linux and other non-Microsoft operating systems.

Wine 1.2.2 brings the usual language translation updates and bug-fixes, but it also introduces support for animated cursor icons as its only new feature of the stable point release. Officially there are just 18 bugs fixed in this release with none of these bug-fixes being too particularly prominent, but they do fix support for Adobe Reader 9, mRemote, Magic Workstation, Microsoft Office 2007, and other applications.

The list of bugs fixed and other details can be found in this Wine announcement page.
