Wine 1.2 release candidate has been released.

Wine 1.2 is not yet released as expected but now a new release candidate for Wine 1.2 has been released. This is the sixth release candidate for Wine 1.2. Wine 1.2 RC6 has a lot of bug-fixes and some more translations. There are still a few bugs left to be fixed but I hope that it will get solved and Wine 1.2 will be released this month.


How Install  Wine 1.2rc6 in Ubuntu

Anyway, if you are in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and want to try out Wine 1.2 RC6, here is what you need to do:

Note: This is a release candidate not a final release. So treat it as such.

  • Open the terminal (or Konsole if you are in Kubuntu).
  • Add the PPA For Ubuntu Wine Team with the command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

  • Update the software list with

sudo apt-get update

  • Finally install Wine 1.2 RC6 with the command

sudo apt-get install wine1.2
