Based on the recently released Wine 1.9.21 development build, Wine Staging 1.9.21 promises a bunch of goodies for those interesting in running the latest Windows games and applications on their GNU/Linux operating system, among which we can mention improvements to the Vulkan wrapper. Furthermore, an initial version of the GIF encoder was implemented in the windowscodecs component, there’s support for METHOD_OUT_DIRECT ioctls, queued xaudio2 AL buffers are now automatically ignored after Stop, and it looks like the SetFileCompletionNotificationModes feature is now available for running Steam’s Web browser in Windows 7 mode.
