WINE 1.7 Available for Ubuntu
Are you an ex-Windows OS user that still wants to use your Windows OS applications in Linux? You can do that with WINE.
What is WINE?
WINE lets you run Windows OS software on other operating systems such as Linux, Mac OS and more without the need of installing the physical operating system. It is a free and open-source software package and it provides alternative implementations of the DLL’s, which are called by Windows OS programs.
Is WINE an emulator?
Many people think that WINE is an emulator. It is not. The name WINE is an acronym for ‘Wine Is Not an Emulator.’
You can run application with the same speed as you run them in Windows OS native. WINE is written in C and released under GNU LGPL v2.1+. The stable release is 1.6 version and the application has a compressed size of 21.1MB.
What about WINE 1.7?
Wine 1.7 was officially released on August 2 and the announcement was made by Alexandre Julliard, who is the Project Leader. There are many bug fixes in this version such as Microsoft Money 2005, 2006, 2007 crash on startup, Photoshop CS2 doesn’t see the internet, Need For Speed: World launcher fails and more. So if you play Need For Speed on Linux and use Photoshop for graphic and image processing, version 1.7 is very good news for you.
If you are interested for more information, you can find a full list of bugs fixed on Wine 1.7 here.
New features of Wine 1.7:
- Support for vertical text in the postscript driver.
- Version 2 of liblcms used now instead of version 1
- Unicode data updated to Unicode 6.2.0
- Hyperlink controls supported in installers
- Improved support for XML attributes
