    Phoronix: Wine 3.0.3 Ships With 50+ Bug Fixes

    If you are a user of the Wine stable releases rather than the bi-weekly Wine development releases or Wine-Staging (or now Proton too), Wine 3.0.3 is out today as the latest version...

    I'm curious to know who uses these "stable" releases over the latest versions

      People who aren't skilled enough to install multiple Wine versions and are perfectly happy with it and don't want random stuff to break on an update?

        So someone is seriously using this poorly ported apple developed program over a windows compatibility layer on Linux?

        That's disgusting, but I guess that's the only option for iPhone/iPad users who wants to make a backup from Linux.

        EDIT: I do hope though that no one actually uses it for media playback over wine...

          Maybe some day people will be running Wine on macOS to run Windows version of iTunes

            I have used Wine for media playback and for the most part don't have many issues. In the Wine 2.x days I used to get audio freezing periodically, in the 3.x days its been less of an issue.

            Are you concerned about audio fidelity, stability or both?

            I have never run an audio test generator through Wine to see if it degrades.

            I have the software, perhaps I will give it a whirl and see if artifacts appear.

              He were concerned about using iTunes as a media player

                The crappyness of itunes makes me appreciate lollypop and rhythmbox with condensed toolbar plugin.

                The windows music experience has gone to hell.

                  foobar2000 is pretty nice though.

                    Fixed that a bit, now it does not need an answer i guess if you know what development means and with what it also comes, where any progressions usually suffer from potentional regressions... development versions are actually very often upgrades.

                    So that is why, stable tracking software users don't do upgrades so often, but not only that... these also don't want to see any regressions during updates too, preferably never or at least not so often, updates experiences to be less intrusive so less regression prone, preferably none and so on and so forth, so these development versions or better to say something that is just a bit more than development checkouts does not fly under that model of mindset

                    Unlike developer mindset who like to make progressions, but also prefer to shut up about regressions and instead advertise bugzilla with various+ categories of bugs , for and end-user average Joe or less, regardless of progressions which are advertised as something nice to see there are regressions++ as a result of more often upgrades whose produce nothing but more frustrations
