Wine 2.0.1 released with 47 bug fixes

The Wine HQ project has announced release of Wine 2.0.1, a maintenance release in Wine 2.x series. This release includes fixes for 47 bugs reported in base version, ie, wine 2.0 and also some deprecated tools like wineinstall has been removed.

What is Wine?

Wine (formerly, WINE - Wine Is Not Emulator)is a software abstraction layer for running windows binary application on GNU/Linux and unix platforms. Instead of providing an emulated windows base, Wine maps windows system calls to unix system calls on real time and hence provides better performance.
