Wineskin 2.5.10 Beta 1

Published by doh123 on 2013-03-15

I'm putting up a Wineskin 2.5.10 Beta 1 wrapper.  Use at your own risk...

The changes from 2.5.9 are...
  • Bug Fix - Fix how Winetricks launches so that its less likely to mess up (fixing new bugs in 2.5.9)
  • a few bug fixes for possible memory leaks or wasted memory usage.
  • Update how the wrapper monitors everything running which should improve start up time and problems.

    • This change is a big one in how things work, and the initial changes may or may not cause new problems.
    • You'll notice that the "wine" and "wineserver" processes normally running with a wrapper will have unique names for the wrapper instead of the generic names.
    • This helps the wrapper launch, monitor, and close down things better and make sure to not interfere with other wrappers, or anything else that uses wineserver (including Cider ported games).
    • Right now the changes are only in Wine usage in the wrapper, but need to be moved over to be used for WineskinX11 as well in future betas.
    • Error reports with launching wrappers, running multiple wrappers, and working with other Wine based products, as well as any and all other feedback would be helpful.
Just download and install this manual installer app, and it will show up as what is installed in Winery.  If you use Update in Winery after that, it will go back to 2.5.9.
