The latest installation instructions for Wine

Wine (Wine Is Not An Emulator) is an open-source compatibility layer software app that enables the Linux and Unix users to run Windows software on their systems, via the Winelib software library.

At first, Wine was an acronym for WINdows Emulator, but later, the name developers have shifted to the recursive backronym, “Wine is not an emulator”, to highlight that no emulation occurs when running Windows software.

The latest version available is Wine 1.7.54, which brings the following changes:

  • Implementation of the TransmitFile function.
  • More implementation of the Web Services DLL.
  • Improved video decoding.
  • Alternative for the deprecated prelink tool.
  • Major Turkish translation update.
  • Various bug fixes.

All you need to do in order to get the latest version of Wine running on your OpenSUSE system is to add the Wine repository to your system, refresh the repository index and install the wine package.
