A new Wine Release Candidate is now available for testing
On June 29, Alexandre Julliard announced a new development version of the Wine app, which brought assorted bug fixes and improvements.After months of lingering in the 1.5.x development version, the developers of Wine have jumped to 1.6.x and have announced that they have actually entered code freeze.
