      But why they bump version major number? Are they going to drop something?

        And before code freeze they froze their site... Winehq.org is all but inaccessible. Simple post to forum times-out etc...

          The only game I've tried is Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It works but you get annoying glitches during dialogue screens. These only go away by setting StrictDrawOrdering=enabled but then the framerate suffers a lot. I went back to using Gallium Nine. The differences are fairly subtle anyway.

            It's a time based version number instead of semantic versioning.

            So the use the major number for yearly releases and minor for the bi-weekly releases

              Would be nice if they took the time to go through some of the more popular off-tree patches and merge them as run-time flags. Some of those are years old and proved essential in many cases.

                Witcher 3 is in good shape, with a few oustdanding bugs being worked on.

                  Prey 2017 was in very good shape, Crysis 2 is pretty much flawless but there are still quite a few problems with "Rise of the Tomb Raider". Nevertheless the progress made to gaming, OpenGL (Mesa), and Vulkan have been impressive in 2017.

                    Still no luck with Far Cry Primal. All graphics are corrupted such that you can't make anything out. Last tried a few weeks back. Really hoping they can sort it out soon so there's a better chance Far Cry 5 is working when it's out early next year.
