PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous apps and games designed to run with Microsoft Windows. PlayOnLinux mainly relies on WineHQ project. Few apps and games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings a cost-free, accessible and efficient solution to this problem.

Changes in this version:
  • Use $POL_TERM more consistently, allow POL_TERM global configuration override. Beware, the terminal must support -T and -e options, so gnome-terminal doesn't qualify (gnome-terminal.wrapper does though)
  • Add a POL_Wine_VersionSignature function to compute a hash of a Wine package
  • Python version string extraction hardening (#4895)
  • POL_System_PartInfo identifies filesystems thru mount point instead of device (Btrfs subvolumes compatibility)
  • Modify bash/document_reader to pass extra arguments unchanged (
  • Remove "skipped lines" messages when the debugger gets the focus back
  • POL_Shortcut: do not overwrite $Binaire to improve logging
  • mainwindow: make alert boxen child of the main window so they cannot get lost behind other windows
  • Prevent POL_Download_Resource clobbering $APP_ANSWER
  • Wine versions management: grey out versions that are not currently in use by any virtual drive and can be safely removed (Tutul)
