Written by Michael Larabel in WINE on 2 November 2015 at 12:03 PM EST. 3 Comments
Coming in just a few days after the Wine 1.7.54 release is the experimental Wine-Staging 1.7.54 release with a few extra features.

New to the Wine-Staging patch-set are multiple improvements and fixes to the Wine IDL (WIDL) compiler that reads data from Microsoft's Interface Definition Language and converts them into alternate formats, which in turn are used by scripting languages wanting to communicate with COM objects.

Wine-Staging 1.7.54 also has a fix for its fake kernel APC (Asynchronous Procedure Calls) support. Beyond that are a handful of smaller patches that made it into this staging tree.
