wisotool 20100618 released

Dan Kegel released wisotool 20100618 today: 19 new verbs (blur, spore, photoshop cs5, ...), and 75 old ones.

wisotool is a handy winetricks like script for automatically installing games from .iso or .mds files copied from your own dvds (or, if the game is freely downloadable, it will download it). Just like winetricks, it is intended to make testing Wine easier, but might be useful for people who simply want to install games.
Unlike winetricks, wisotool is quiet by default, it doesnt ask any questions (except, for now, it prompts for your password so it can mount the .iso file).

Wisotool currently supports about 95 games and/or benchmarks (see below). Please consider contributing support for your favorite game, its not (too) hard. Im especially interested in recent or beta games, ideally wisotool would support good games or betas on or near their day of release.
