Wine 2.5 Has Fixes for Skyrim and Rayman 3 Crashes, Mafia III Improvements

Wine 2.5 is here two weeks after the previous development release, namely Wine 2.4, and adds a bunch of under-the-hood enhancements like support for message-mode named pipes (needed by numerous apps and games), transform feedback support in Direct3D, scheduler classes in the C++ runtime, and better scrolling in pop-up menus. Additionally, Wine 2.5 adds more improvements to the XML reader and includes a translation of version resources through po files. It also comes with a total of 30 bug fixes for the Wine configuration, the WideCharToMultiByte function, mouse input, as well as both old and recent games and applications that are designed to run only for Microsoft Windows operating systems.
