wisotool 20100530 has been released

"Dan Kegel today released wisotool 20100530.

"wisotool is a handy winetricks-like script for automatically installing games from .iso or .mds files copied from your own dvds (or, if the game is freely downloadable, it will download it). Just like winetricks, it is intended to make testing Wine easier, but might be useful for people who simply want to install games. Unlike winetricks, wisotool is quiet by default; it doesnt ask any questions (except, for now, it prompts for the root password so it can mount the .iso file; later it will use fuse instead).

"Wisotool currently supports 60 games and/or benchmarks (see list below). Please consider contributing support for your favorite game, its not (too) hard. Im especially interested in recent or beta games; ideally wisotool would support (worthwhile) games on the day they are released."
