Wasn't quite sure where to post about Linux software so I thought I post here. Does anyone know when wine 3.0.1 for Ubuntu 18.04 will be available?

Hi Eddie here is as good as any :)

If you are talking wine-stable, it may not occur before the release of Ubuntu 18.04.1 in July.

If you are talking wine-development, then there is up to 3.6 in the repos, and the following link also tells how you can add a PPA to your Ubuntu.

That being said, I do not use Wine, so I can't provide any technical advice :confused:

Cheers

Someone here told me that Ubuntu 18.4.1 might have Wine 3.0.1, I think I'll wait till July 26 & see what it has when I get it.

I figured out how to get Wine 3.0.1 installed but w/ one problem, the Configure Wine file wasn't anywhere to be found. Is version 3.0.1 supposed to have that file just like 3.0 is?

Btw, I installed Wine 3.0.1 using "Sudo su" in terminal.

How do you configure Wine 3.0.1 or is it preconfigured?

And for more fun and excitement... Wine 3.0.2 was released yesterday, 26 June 2018. :eek::D

(See the link for changelog and bug fixes.)

Cheers
I tried installing Version but the Terminal keeps saying that "Version 3.0.1 is the latest version" Do I uninstall it then install 3.0.2?

Please be patient, Eddie! There is no need to bump your threads... we see you! Thanks! :D

The Wine HQ main page says this:
The source is available now. Binary packages are in the process of being built, and will appear soon at their respective download locations.
So, the binary is not yet available, as they are explaining. This is always the case with them... there is a delay while the binary packages are prepared. You can build the new version from source code, or wait... whichever you prefer.

Cheers
