PlayOnLinux 3.8.3 is now available

PlayOnLinux 3.8.3 is now available! But what about 3.8.2?  Due to a little mistake, 3.8.2 didn’t have the updated translations. So this is a bug fix release but also  some new features are in.

What’s new since 3.8.1?

Bug fixes, updates and a couple new features are in for you… 


Bug #17, regarding an error message that popped up during manual installations.
Bug #26, regarding a function used by scripts, that didn’t work properly. 

As for updates:

PlayOnLinux now warns you if you are operating offline, if you are using the Offline plugin or if you are using a development version, like it does when a new version is available. 
The Capture and Advanced Wine Configuration plugins have been updated to versions 2.2 and 3.6 respectively.

And the new stuff:

playonlinux-cmd offers even more possibilities as it is now possible to list installed applications, search for a new one to install, delete an existing application and launch an application – prompts will be asked in the console instead of the regular graphical interface, except for Windows applications proper. 

A new useful function for scripters, that changes the name of the desktop emulated by Wine when it runs in “virtual desktop” mode. Esay to use: 


Set_WineWindowTitle "My Wine Desktop"

A new plugin for post-install shortcuts, called “Detour”.
