Wine has not been updated in a while (it's still 6.16-1) Why?

Hi All,

I noticed wine has not been updated in a while. Arch linux has 6.16, (upstream released it at August 27, 2021). Upstream is now at 6.19 (released October 8, 2021).

What is the reason? Can I help?

Best,
Cedric

I have obtained the PKGBUILD via asp, if unchanged, it will build wine 6.16:

# pacman -S asp
$ asp checkout wine
$ cd wine/
$ cat PKGBUILD
pkgname=wine
pkgver=6.16
pkgrel=1

in order to build wine 6.19, those 3 lines have to be changed to:
pkgname=wine
pkgver=6.19
pkgrel=1

and then  the package can be build if the sha256sums are ignored:
$ makepkg --skipchecksums

Or you just use updpkgsums.

The stable Wine version as per upstream is 6.01. Arch usually sticks with stable upstream unless there are reasons to do otherwise. 6.16 and 6.19 are development versions. If one or two of them are being skipped for whatever reasons, then that's how it is. If you think 6.19 has relevant improvements and fixes over 6.16, then send a message to the respective mailing list or get in contact with Felix (although Felix is one hell of a busy person, judging from all the packages).
