The Wine team has released Wine 3.0. The main new features and improvements are:

  • Direct3D 10 and 11 support.
  • The Direct3D command stream.
  • The Android graphics driver.
  • Improved DirectWrite and Direct2D support.

You'll get it through your distribution of choice, or you can build or download it yourself.

That was last tested against Wine 1.7.17 (development branch) on the 24/04/2014. Since that testing is very old, it is quite possible that will install and run now.

There are two branches of Wine, one is the stable branch that receives bug fixes only and the other is the development branch that is released usually every other week.

So if you are worried about regressions, use the stable branch.
