General Development

This release represents over a year of development effort and around 6,600 individual changes. The main highlights are the support for Microsoft Office 2013, and the 64-bit support on macOS.

It also contains a lot of improvements across the board, as well as support for many new applications and games. See the release notes below for a summary of the major changes.

As awesome of a project Wine is, I wonder how many people actually use it on a daily basis. Maybe I'm wildly off base here (honestly, I probably am), but it seems like if you're running Linux, there's really nothing Windows applications offer that Linux can't.

Can you share your experiences? As an owner of a copy of SM Office 2016, I find it the most MS-compatible office suite, except the macro stuff. (I mostly use TextMaker.) But of course, there are always usage specifics and corner cases.

The issues I've noticed are generally with tables; they don't always convert that well.
I do have to say, though, that in my case the tables in question are usually created by a third party, so I can't comment on how well they were originally constructed.
