wine-staging still supported??

Hi, I'd just like to know is wine-staging is still supported as it's was flagged out of date Dec 09/2023 and no updates.

Please, I'm not trying to be disrespectful or selfish as I know y'all do this on your spare time which I am overly grateful for.
I'm just inquiring as I need it and need to know if to move on from it to another version of wine.

Thank you.

I can't speak for the maintainer of that package, but the new meme package to install for wine is wine-ge-custom. It has various patches from wine-staging plus other fixes too.

Re: wine-staging still supported??

Thought I'd add my 2 cents:  In the world of proton and wine the initials "GE" are a good thing.....90% of the time.  There are exceptions, and you'll find them if you're a gamer.  If you really wanted to you could look at the pkgbuild for wine-staging and make your own.  I think it's basically the development branch of wine plus a set of patches.  I've done that with other things.  It looks daunting at first when you start fiddling with things but you get to where it's like second nature.

I am waiting too, it seems the maintainer of wine-staging is also the maintainer of wine, which he updates, so I am wondering if he abandoned the staging branch or not.

Re: wine-staging still supported??

I tried building wine-staging recently and it wouldn't even build with just updating sources and checksums of the PKGBUILD.
Applying the relevant changes made to the wine - PKGBUILD since version 8.21 did build a package, but it was just a regular wine (although the build process clearly build the wine-staging parts, too)

My guess is that the update requires some more work that the maintainer currently doesn't have the time for. With gitlab it is now possible to assist the maintainer with Merge Requests, so if anyone manages to create a PKGBUILD that successfully builds wine-staging 9.3, it might be a good idea to put it on gitlab.
I don't have the skills to get it working and also not the time to acquire those skills at the moment.

I built it successfully.
Applying the patches seemingly can fail silently if building from within a git tree where the files to be patched are not tracked.
What worked for me was to change the line that applies the patches to:

GIT_DIR=. ../wine-staging-$_pkgbasever/staging/patchinstall.py --all

Re: wine-staging still supported??

I read on the Wine-staging, on Winehq, and on Proton 9-1 release notes, that wine-staging is being rebased on top of proton 9 bleeding edge wine. Am I correct to understand that it will then no longer be or that releases will only be farther apart?

look in the actual repositories. wine-staging is always rebased on top of wine with every point release, and of course also with every major release. Also, you are mixing proton and wine. proton is Valve's wine fork. Not the official wine.

Thank you, yes, sorry I meant Wine upstream as per Winehq page, instead of Proton.

Do we have any news about the staging branch?

Nevermind, it's looking good: https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … requests/1
