WineHQ - Wine Announcement - The Wine team is proud to announce that the stable release Wine 3.0

*** Android

- Wine can be built as an APK package and behaves like a proper Android
application.

- A full graphics driver is implemented. Because of restrictions of the
Android window management API, only full screen desktop mode is
supported.

- A full audio driver is implemented.

- OpenGL is supported, but it's limited to the OpenGL ES API that is
available on Android.

- Direct3D is not supported yet, because it cannot run on top of OpenGL ES
at this point. This will be addressed during the next development cycle.

The immediate question for me is whether to even bother trying to package Wine for Ubuntu 19.10 and up. The suggestion from Ubuntu is to use the 32 bit libraries from 18.04, which will be supported until 2023. It's theoretically possible for me to build the 32 bit side on the OBS using the libraries from 18.04, but that would lead to a mismatch in library versions the 32 and 64 bit sides were built against. Apt requires the i386 and amd64 versions of packages match or it will refuse to install them, so unless that changes, users of 19.10 and up will be unable to install the 32 bit libraries they need to run Wine, unless they downgrade a significant part of their system to the 18.04 versions.
