It Will Soon Be Easier To Run The Latest Wine On Popular Linux Distributions
Written by Michael Larabel in WINE on 11 December 2015 at 08:50 AM EST. 15 Comments
With the Wine crew shipping new unstable releases every two weeks, the Wine packages that end up in Linux distributions tend to be out of date for fetching the bleeding edge support for running Windows programs on Linux. As a result, Wine developers are stepping up their game in providing packages for popular Linux distributions.

The Wine-Staging developers have been building out their own packages for major Linux distributions and will now be helping out the upstream Wine maintainers in providing the latest packages in a variety of formats.

Wine packaging improvements have been made for Debian, openSUSE, Fedora, Mageia, CentOS, and Arch Linux.

More details on the Wine packaging changes can be found via this blog post.
