Hey. I downloaded 1.7.8 and have the .bz2 file and would love to manually input it, as for some reason playonmac is not seeing 1.7.8 when trying to configure steam to run on 1.7.8. It only sees. 1.7.7. Any help either letting me know how to manually do it, or whether you guys can update the wine list? Thanks for all your hard work, and allowing us to play PC games on our macs so easily.

1.7.8 did not compile for Mac, don't know what package you found

I am probably a dumb dumb, as I know nothing. Honestly, as I have never messed with Wine or anything before, but downloaded the .bz2 file from winehq.com/downloads

I know that you probably know this, hence me reiterating my dumb dumb status. I was just wondering if there was a way to manually push a wine version download to the playonmac application. You don't have to waste time explaining something I probably won't understand, you can just say no. ha.

I guess the version on winehq is only for linux then?
