The Wine development release 1.3.25 is now available. What’s new in this release: rewrite of the audio support, using the Win7 architecture, old-style sound drivers for Jack, NAS and ESD are removed, graphics driver architecture changes for the DIB engine, improved handling of the shell recycle bin, better joystick support in DirectInput, initial stub for VBScript support and various bug fixes.
Wine enables Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, and Solaris users to run Windows applications without a copy of Microsoft Windows. Wine is free software under constant development.
To install Wine open a terminal window (press Alt+F2 and type: gnome-terminal) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.3
If you already have Wine and the ppa installed Wine will be updated to the latest version when running a system update.
