PlayOnLinux 3.8.5: Critical Update!

Thursday 28 October 2010 at 21:40 (0 comments)

[box title=New_PlayOnLinux_logo]https://www.playonlinux.com/images/uploads/31.jpg[/box]
PlayOnLinux 3.8.5 is available!

You could say skipping a version is becoming a habit... unfortunately the reason behind this is rather sad than funny.

Following the accidental introduction of bug #58 (fr) in version 3.8.3, version 3.8.4's release made it impossible to launch PoL 3.8.3.
As a result, within a few hours we made the new 3.8.5 to fix the issue that is now present in both 3.8.3 and 3.8.4.
This means that if you were using versions 3.8.3 or 3.8.4, you must now update to version 3.8.5 immediately, otherwise you will not be able to use PlayOnLinux.

Besides fixing this (major) bug, we made another change, to a function used by scripts to create shortcuts. Its arguments had been inverted compared to PlayOnMac, which made compatibility between PlayOnMac and PlayOnLinux rather difficult.

Download it here as soon as you can!

Dragon Age: Origins now on PlayOnlInux

Thursday 30 September 2010 at 15:50 (0 comments)

Hi there,

Dragon Age: Origins is a PC role-playing game based on an original fantasy setting. An intuitive team combat system allows you to defeat the hordes of enemies that come at you. You can see how your choices and affiliations redefine the world around your character. Each player takes part in a unique prologue that determines the way their character sees the world and how the world sees them, which then greatly impacts the way the story unfolds.

Here is a short preview of the game, made with the Capture plugin (a quiet evening amidst the chaos):

Also available,
- Dragon Age: Awakening (official expansion)
- Dragon Age Patch 1.04

PlayOnLinux 3.8.3

Monday 27 September 2010 at 19:37 (3 comments)

[box title=New_PlayOnLinux_logo]https://www.playonlinux.com/images/uploads/31.jpg[/box]
PlayOnLinux 3.8.3 is now available! But what about 3.8.2?
Due to a little mistake, 3.8.2 didn't have the updated translations. So we decided to jump to a new version to fix that issue.

What's new since 3.8.1?



Bug fixes, updates and a couple new features are in for you...

Fixes:


Bug #17, regarding an error message that popped up during manual installations.
Bug #26, regarding a function used by scripts, that didn't work properly.

As for updates:


PlayOnLinux now warns you if you are operating offline, if you are using the Offline plugin or if you are using a development version, like it does when a new version is available.
The Capture and Advanced Wine Configuration plugins have been updated to versions 2.2 and 3.6 respectively.
The code has been modified to - probably - fix bug #392513 from Launchpad.
Practically every English string has been revised to ease use and translation. Thanks to Salvatos for this big update. Please note that PoL may not be fully translated in your language yet, so don't hesitate to post suggestions on Launchpad and they will be checked and approved by the appropriate team for inclusion in the next version. The following languages are already 85% translated or more: Hebrew, French, Czech, Russian, Lituanian (in descending order of completion).
Click here to help translate.

And the new stuff:


playonlinux-cmd offers even more possibilities as it is now possible to list installed applications, search for a new one to install, delete an existing application and launch an application - prompts will be asked in the console instead of the regular graphical interface, except for Windows applications proper.

A new useful function for scripters, that changes the name of the desktop emulated by Wine when it runs in "virtual desktop" mode. Esay to use:
Set_WineWindowTitle "My Wine Desktop"

A new plugin for post-install shortcuts, called "Detour".

Downloadable here as usual!
