It's been a busy day in the space for running Windows games and applications on Linux. Wine 7.10 was released as the newest bi-weekly development feature release while Valve and CodeWeavers also issued the release candidate for Proton 7.0-3 as the newest update to that Wine-based software powering Steam Play for running Windows games on Linux.

Wine 7.10 isn't too exciting but updates against the Mono 7.3 engine, adds Windows-compatible Unicode collation, WoW64 support in the SECUR32 code, and there are 56 known bug fixes. This is rather a lot of bug fixes compared to usual and affects software ranging from Microsoft Office XP 2002 to GPU Caps Viewer to a number of games as well as Steam itself.

Downloads and all the Wine 7.10 changes via WineHQ.org.

The Proton 7.0-3 release candidate was also released on Friday afternoon and is now available for easy deployment on Steam. Games newly-added to the known compatibility list for Proton 7.0-3 include:

The Proton 7.0-3 RC also has performance improvements for games like Street Fighter V and Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice, a Final Fantasy XIV Online launcher fix, a crash fix for Elden Ring, various video playback fixes, improved text rendering for the Rockstar Launcher, and a number of other game fixes. Wine 7.0-3 RC also updates to Wine Mono 7.3, DXVK 10.1.1-57-g279b4b7e, and DXVK-NVAPI 0.5.4.


Proton / Steam Play continues advancing nicely for improving Windows games on Linux both for traditional Linux gaming and more recently with the Steam Deck.
