Wine development release 5.0-rc1 is now available for Linux FreeBSD and macOS

The Wine development release 5.0-rc1 is now available.

This is the first release candidate for the upcoming Wine 5.0. It marks the beginning of the yearly code freeze period. Please give this release a good testing to help us make 5.0 as good as possible.

What's new in this release:

  • Gecko update, with support for running from a global location.
  • Unicode data updated to Unicode version 12.1.
  • Initial version of the MSADO (ActiveX Data Objects) library.
  • Update installation support in the WUSA (Windows Update Standalone) tool.
  • More progress on the kernel32/kernelbase restructuring.
  • Support for signing with ECDSA keys.
  • Various bug fixes.

The source is available now. Binary packages are in the process of being built, and will appear soon at their respective download locations.
