WINE --
Wine 7.21 is out as the latest bi-weekly development snapshot of this software to enjoy Windows games and applications on Linux.

The feature freeze and release candidate period is expected to begin next month for Wine 8.0 while Wine 7.21 is one of the few remaining bi-weekly feature releases prior to that start.

Wine 7.21 continues the ongoing trend around portable executable (PE) conversion and gets Wine's OpenGL library now in PE format along with working on support for multi-architecture PE builds. Wine 7.21 also works on enabling support for 32-bit Windows Vulkan games/apps with the rest of the 64-bit system software/driver stack, support for creating import libraries without dlltool, locale data updates, and various bug fixes.

There are 25 known bug fixes with Wine 7.21 that help out software like Visual Studio and Cherry MIDI Sequencer and Adobe Reader along with various games.
