Wine-Staging 2.18 Fixes CEF Issue With Origin / UPlay/Battle.net
Wine-Staging 2.18 first up adds support for ECDSA certificate chains, which by itself may not sound exciting, but it's needed for software using libcef - the Chromium Embedded framework. Among the many applications using CEF are Origin, Uplay, and Battle.net. Having this ECDA certificate chain support fixes various issues in those programs.
The other notable change in Wine-Staging 2.18 is vsync handling support in Direct3D 10/11. Now D3D10/D3D11 games can toggle vsync within Wine and work correctly, etc.
