Wine 9.11 is now available as the newest bi-weekly development release of this open-source software for enjoying Windows games and applications under Linux and other platforms. With Wine 9.11 we are now roughly at the half-way point before Wine's typical feature freeze and release candidate start that typically begins around early December and this cycle will lead up to the Wine 10.0 stable release in early 2025.

Wine 9.11 continues the work brought up in Wine 9.10 of greater monitor/display DPI awareness. With Wine 9.11, the desired display DPI is now being passed to more Win32 APIs, the DPI context is being restored during cursor clipping under both X11 and Wayland, and DPI awareness is forced in more functions. This is good news with the all common HiDPI displays these days and as part of making Wine more robust for modern environments.

Wine 9.11 also brings C++ exception handling now for Wine on ARM platforms. The rest of the Wine 9.11 changes are focused on bug fixes for which there are 27 bug fixes over the past two weeks. The fixes range from the PhysX installer failing to various game issues like Ghost Recon and Overwatch 2 and Postal 2 to addressing problems with Steam.
