wisotool 20100731 released

(Other stories by Tom Wickline)

"wisotool is a handy winetricks-like script for automatically installing games from .iso 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 it prompts for your password so it can mount the .iso file, and it prompts you to insert the disk if the .iso file is not found).

"Wisotool currently supports about 145 games and/or benchmarks (see below). Please consider contributing support for your favorite game, its not (too) hard. Thanks to everyone who contributed changes for this release."
