Wine 0.9.49

Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. Think of Wine as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris.


  • Many copy protection fixes.
  • GLSL is now the default for Direct3D.
  • Lots of memory errors fixed thanks to Valgrind.
  • Support for TOPMOST windows.
  • Beginnings of an inetcomm dll implementation.
  • Lots of bug fixes.
