The Wine Staging release 2.12 is now available.

What's new in this release:

  • Support for depth bias / depth clamping in D3D11.
  • Support for copying between resources with compatible DXGI formats.

  • Various smaller bug fixes and improvements.

Wine Staging 2.12 contains various Direct3D 10/11 improvements and fixes rendering bugs in multiple applications, including Assassin's Creed III, Witcher 3, Trackmania Turbo or the Unigine Heaven benchmark.

This release also fixes a startup issue with the latest version of the Steam client (Thursday, 06 July 2017).

In addition, Wine Staging users will also benefit from the following changes merged in the development branch:

  • Audio driver for Android.
  • Some performance improvements with async I/O.
