Wineskin 2.6.0 Beta 1 !

Published by doh123 on 2014-03-18

Here is a beta to test some Wineskin changes.  I went ahead and upped the version to 2.6.0 and doing a test release due to some major functionality changes in the wrapper behind the scenes.

Please test this out and let me know of any bugs or other needed features ASAP, so I can make the 2.6.0 release great!

List of changes

  • Wineskin.m background daemon has been merged into WineskinLauncher.  Please test thoroughly, including file assocations, and opening the wrapper from Finder, as well as all other functionality and screen options.  Wineskin.m used to be the main brains of the wrapper, so a lot had to change to get it working inside of WineskinLauncher.
  • A D3DBoost checkbox has been added in Screen Options in Wineskin.app.  This will quickly let you enable/disable the CSMT option for Command Stream in Wine.  This is currently only in Wineskin engines maked D3DBoost, and in the WS9WineCX13.1.0 engine.  It will be in future Wine versions when CSMT becomes standard in Wine.
  • Killall Wineskin button in Wineskin.app should work again.
  • Killall Wineskin button will also attempt to clear stuck launchd process to clear up 10810 errors.
  • Fixed a parsing bug in Winetricks update that caused some entries to have the wrong command names and fail to work, such as corefonts and allfonts.
  • Stuck launchd processes will try to be removed at wrapper shut down, if any.  This is to attempt to prevent 10810 errors.
  • In the git repo, Wineskin.app projoect folder has been renamed from Wineskin to WineskinApp.
  • In the git repo, WineskinLauncherAS (the Applescript version of the old Launcher) has been removed.
  • In the git repo, Wineskin.m has been removed.
