Wine 1.2 Announced with 64-bit Application Support

by Developer.com Staff

Wine lets you run Windows applications on Linux, Mac, FreeBSD and Solaris. Version 1.2 now supports 64-bit applications, except for Gecko-based Web browsers.

The Wine team announced that Wine 1.2 is available now.

In addition to the 3,000 bugs crushed and over 23,000 changes, open source Wine now offers 64-bit application support and new graphics based on the Tango standard.

After two years of development, Wine 1.2 is the second major stable release. The next development version will be 1.3, and 1.4 will be the next major stable release.

In the announcement on WineHQ Alexandre Julliard said, "There is no 64-bit version of the Gecko engine yet, so 64-bit applications that use a browser control won't work correctly."
