WineX 3.2 Released

Transgaming announced the release of WineX 3.2, the latest version of their gaming-oriented fork of WINE which allows Linux users to play Windows-native games. This version includes support for Max Payne 2, Warcraft III, and Homeworld 2 and improvements for games like Battlefield 1942 and Diablo II (I believe 3.2 fixes the annoying sound "popping" bug). Packages are available for subscribers in RPM, DEB, and TGZ formats.

UPDATE! I just installed WineX 3.2 and tested it with Diablo II. Thankfully, the sound problems are fixed. The speeches from the various characters no longer sound like Edison-era recordings. Note: that never stopped me from playing, but it is very nice to get that fixed.
