How to Install Wine 2.21 Released via PPA on Ubuntu

   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 2.21 changelog:
  • Still more metafile support in GdiPlus.
  • Indirect draws support in Direct 3D.
  • Calling convention fixes on ARM.
  • Improved serial port detection on Linux.
  • Services fixes on WoW64.
  • Better DPI scaling in the Shell Explorer.
Bugs fixed in 2.21 :
  • Hydro Thunder from Midway Arcade Treasures 3 crashes quickly after the start
  • Resetting a write watch can cause memory access violation in kernel
  • SpinTires crashes with unimplemented function d3dx9_36.dll.D3DXFrameFind

  • dinput/tests/mouse intermittently fails in Acquire() and GetDeviceData()
  • Multiple games require sample_c_lz for cube/array textures (Winexy, Witcher 3, Flame in the Flood)
  • The Witcher 3 freezes the system in a certain area of the game
  • Process Hacker 2.x needs ADVAPI32.dll.LsaLookupPrivilegeName
  • NieR:Automata - Most bullets are invisible
  • Medusa Demo crashes with unimplemented function d3dx10_43.dll.D3DX10PreprocessShaderFromMemory
  • USB "ttyACM0" serial port not being created
  • Keepass2 fails to launch
  • MSVC LINK.EXE version 14.11.25547.0 crashes due to unimplemented function _memicmp_l
