Written by Michael Larabel in WINE on 8 March 2017 at 11:27 AM EST. 12 Comments
The developers behind the Wine-Staging tree that carries various experimental patches atop the latest upstream Wine repository for running Windows programs on Linux/macOS have announced their newest bi-weekly build.

Wine-Staging 2.3 is the new release derived from last week's official Wine 2.3 development release. Wine-Staging 2.3 implements the ECB mode in bcrypt, ported more D3D11 functions to D3D10, minor Command-Stream Multi-Threading (CSMT) improvements, and more bug fixes. It's great to see the continued effort around the Direct3D CSMT support for yielding better Windows gaming performance, hopefully we'll see more of that upstreamed soon.
