winetricks alpha 20110306 has been released

Dan Kegel has released WineTricks 20110306
Another fortnight, another Winetricks.

Version 20110306-alpha has a slightly cleaned up gui,
a handful of bugfixes and sha1sum updates,
eight new games (crysis2_demo_mp, diablo2, dragonage,
masseffect2_demo, penpenxmas, rayman2_demo, sammax301_demo, and secondlife),
one new dll (dinput),
and one new setting (vd=640x480).
It removes ie68, which is no longer needed, now that ie8 works.

It isolates all apps in their own wineprefix by default now, not just games. The option --isolate-games is gone, and a new option --no-isolate was added. And finally, it's not quite as slow at putting up menus.

Changes since 20110222:

  • Update disk space & time install requirements
  • diablo2: waiting for updater window isn't enough, you have to wait for it to say it's finished!
  • Cope with empty USERNAME, which happens when using startx.
  • hegemony_gold: updated sha1sum
  • Added 'folder' verb to open current wineprefix with xdg-open
  • Show title of installed app rather than absolute path in comment at top, give example of how to install all prereqs
  • firefox: update to 3.6.15, fix system menu.
  • corefonts: Trebuc filenames have mixed case. Fixes bug winezeug-203.
  • Install apps and benchmarks into their own prefixes, too. Show prefix name uniformly in window title. Move ie to dlls, call dlls 'Windows
  • dlls or components'.
  • Add option --no-isolate-games, make --isolate-games the default
  • annihilate: actually ask permission before annihilating the wineprefix.
  • gta_vc: ported, updated.
  • Better fix for bug winezeug-25, should fix new bug winezeug-229
  • w_download: fix progress indicator gui for locales that use , as a decimal separator. Pointed out by kmiksi. Fixes bug winezeug-232.
  • Add a paragraph at the top about what tools this script uses.
  • Cleaned up comments at top. Moved version ID to very top.
  • vc2005trial: update workarounds for wine-1.3.15
  • Last changeset was missing wildcards on two patterns
  • Speed up common case of w_pathconv -u 3x by writing it in shell. Suggestion by Christian Storgaard.
  • rayman2_demo: new verb. Based on a patch by Shannon.
  • Make --optout take effect earlier.
  • winetricks_stats_init: always quote W_CACHE
  • dinput: new verb by Shannon, for winehq bug 21159
  • vd=640x480: new verb, by Shannon
  • diablo2: ported and updated. (Next up: diablo2bc, battle chest version.)
  • crysis2_demo_mp: fix non-q mode, use SetWinDelay to simplify. Patch by Phil.
  • W_CACHE_WIN should just be a drive letter and colon in wine penpenxmas: new verb (based on a patch by Manpreet Sangha)
  • crysis2_demo_mp: new verb by Austin
  • sammax301_demo: new verb by Phil
  • secondlife: ported and updated
  • w_download: autohotkey's download server doesn't like curl's user agent, so use a more common one
  • masseffect2_demo: partly fix windows install. (Clicks still not working.)
  • w_mount: Port support for windows mounts of iso volumes.
  • winetricks_read_volume_name: hexdump is not portable, use od instead
  • w_read_key: create directory before storing key
  • sims3: update to latest version, mention drm problem as showstopper
  • masseffect2: mark as broken drm.
  • masseffect2, masseffect2_demo: move workaround descriptions into
  • w_workaround arg.
  • masseffect2_demo: port verb
  • firefox4: updated to beta12
  • dragonage: ported verb. Flickers terribly in movies for me :-(
  • osmos_demo: bug 24416 fixed in 1.3.8
  • w_warn: in -q mode, time out after 5 seconds.
  • Get rid of debug print.
  • sims3: if we want menus to work, we have to install dotnet20.
  • Move sudo detect after gui detect; fixes running winetricks-alpha from system menu
  • ie68: no longer needed, now that ie8 works
  • w_warn: text passed to zenity must be escaped
  • ie8: make -q not fail install test.
  • Fix --gui option, which was ignored because variable was reset after option was processed
  • winetricks_set_wineprefix: Comment out debug print
  • annihilate: only delete .desktop files.
  • Use localized name for Desktop directory.
  • Move silent option to top level menu
  • ie8: set TabProcGrowth=0 to avoid hang. Fixes winezeug bug 159. Thanks to MatthiasLichter.
  • Fix running on cygwin (W_DRIVE_C was wrong)
