Wineskin 2.5.9 is released!

Whats changed?


  • Initial Mac Driver support
    • This will use the native Quartz interface of OS X instead of the extra X11 layer requirement.
    • This is a work in progress that could be buggy and unstable.
    • Option to enable Mac Driver instead of X11 in Wineskin.app Screen Options
    • If you are using an engine that doesn't have a working Mac Driver, the wrapper may fail to work at all until you disable trying to use it.
    • Support in Engines with Wine 1.5.22+ and in CX engines 12.0.0+
  • The Installer should no longer miss exe, bat, or msi files based on their choice of capital or lowercase letters
  • Winetricks should work more efficiently with less chance of weird wrapper launching bugs.
  • Wineskin daemon (the main brains of the wrapper) overhauled for efficiency, to use less memory, and to avoid a few memory leaks.
  • Several launch fixes that could cause a wrapper to not launch after using it once before.
  • Engine used should go into the X11 log along with system data
  • useless TRACE entries from logs when using Override->fullscreen should be gone
  • wrappers should no longer leave tons of useless savedState folders in "~/Library/Saved Application State"  If you have extras in there, you can safely trash them.
