Wine development release 6.0-rc1 is now available for Linux FreeBSD and macOS

The Wine development release 6.0-rc1 is now available.

This is the first release candidate for the upcoming Wine 6.0. It marks the beginning of the yearly code freeze period. Please give this release a good testing to help us make 6.0 as good as possible.

What's new in this release:

  • Gecko engine update.
  • WindowsCodecs and QCap libraries converted to PE.
  • Faster font initialization at process start.
  • Support for named pipes with empty names.
  • 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.
