Written by Michael Larabel in WINE on 22 February 2017 at 06:05 AM EST. 5 Comments
Wine-Staging 2.2 is now available as the latest version of Wine that carries various testing/experimental patches re-based atop the latest Wine bi-weekly development snapshot.

New to the Wine-Staging tree with its 2.2 release are CSMT speed optimizations, Wbemprox improvements, and other smaller fixes and improvements. The CSMT speed optimizations are certainly exciting: further tuning of Wine's Direct3D Command-Stream Multi-Threading support that still isn't flipped on in mainline Wine. Wine-Staging developers have been testing various DirectX 10/11 games in looking for ways to further improve the CSMT implementation.
