How to install Wine 1.8.5 Stable on Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 16.04

Wine (originally an acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator") is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.

Wine 1.8.5 Changelog:
  • Windows Movie Maker 2.x needs ole32.dll.StgOpenPropStg
  • Microsoft Publisher 2007 and 2010 crash when opening documents/templates (TSF manager 'ITextStoreACPSink' must support QI with 'IID_ITextStoreACPServices')
  • Use-after-free in DdeClientTransaction in user32 dde tests
  • Windows utility 'relog.exe' crashes on unimplemented function 'pdh.dll.PdhGetLogFileTypeW'
