Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The weekly development release of Wine landed on Friday with the usual smattering of minor additions, bug fixes and improvements.

The official announcement paints the most notable changes as being:

  • Icons in “open with” menus
  • Support for schemas in MSXML
  • Installer fixes
  • Many bug fixes – including for  Civilization 4, Guild Wars & Unreal Tournament 3
  • Translation updates


As always the easiest way to keep up with the weekly Wine Dev releases is through the Wine unstable PPA.

Maverick users can do this using the PPA @ ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa.

Note: Wine 1.2 users will need to run ‘sudo apt-get install wine1.3′ to upgrade.
