The Wine development release 1.3.36 is now available. Wine lets you run Windows software on other operating systems. With Wine, you can install and run these applications just like you would in Windows.
To install wine 1.3.36 open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get updte
sudo apt-get install wine1.3
If you already have the PPA and Wine 1.3 installed, Wine will be updated to the latest version when running an system update.
Wine is still under active development. Not every program works yet, however there are already several million people using Wine to run their software.
What’s new in this release:
UDisks backend for the dynamic device support.
Polygons and geometric pens implemented in the DIB engine.
JScript now compiles entire functions.
Improved support for vertical fonts.
A few more scripts in UniScribe.
A bunch of ctype functions implemented in MSVCP.
Various bug fixes.
