Hangover 0.8.9 Released For Running More Windows Games/Apps On ARM Linux

By pairing Wine and QEMU, Hangover continues as one of the open-source projects working to allow Windows games/apps run on other architectures like AArch64 and potentially POWER, RISC-V, and others too.

Earlier this year German developer André Zwing restarted work on Hangover as a pairing of Wine and QEMU for running Windows x86/x64 games and applications on ARM Linux as well as there having been some work done in the past for POWER and interest expressed by some that this could also help in getting Windows programs running on RISC-V. The Hangover restart came after the WoW64 support has come together nicely upstream in Wine.

Since the project restart earlier this year there have been a number of new Hangover releases to bring fixes and improvements. On Thursday was the release of Hangover 0.8.9 that brought more bug fixes, performance improvements, and lowering the number of patches carried by Hangover against upstream Wine.
