    not sure if i understand this right, but does it mean that the amount of patches is actually dropping? wasn't it closer to 1000 some versions ago?

      Wine-Staging 5.5 also has a fix for Winemenubuilder in properly respecting existing defaults for file-type associations
      No way! Does that mean in the future I won't suddenly have Internet Explorer open my GIFs? Amazing

        my solution about winemenubuilder

        Code:
        #include <windows.h>
        
        int PASCAL wWinMain (HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE prev, LPWSTR cmdline, int show)
        {
        return 0;
        }
        save as programs/winemenubuilder/winemenubuilder.c in the wine sources (overwrite)

        build wine

        profit

          Seems like the last year or so it's been over 800 patches. Would be nice if they could get that number down even more, but I guess they're upstreaming patches at the same rate as new patches are being made.

            My solution to the menu builder issue is having my wine frontend script adding the following registry entry to the wine prefix:

            REGEDIT4
            [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DllOverrides]
            "winemenubuilder.exe"=""

              Which means Wine-Staging is fulfilling the purpose it's named for, to be a staging/trial area for new patches to be tested before they're upstreamed. I don't particularly think the number of patches being high is a bad sign, so long as it's not increasing at a much greater rate than being accepted upstream.
