Notes about updates

Unread postby Konomi » Dec 26th, '14, 07:18

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to leave a note here, if you're wondering why new builds of Wine don't show up very often it's because most of the new builds don't fix any of the current problems with GW2 or there are no speed improvements. Soon as we see any improvements to Wine we will release new builds.

We're working on an entirely new launcher based upon node-webkit that will be released when Wine makes significant enough improvements to warrant it. This will likely be around the same time as the upcoming Heart of Thorns expansion that ArenaNet has announced.

The new graphical launcher and Wine binaries will support both 32- and 64-bit, and will run on any system that is capable of already running Google Chrome, upon which node-webkit is based. Unfortunately, this will greatly increase the download size but bandwidth and storage space are widely available these days and 32-bit support is starting to be dropped by distros.

Unlike the current launcher which is a command-line shell script, the new launcher will act as a frontend to the backend script and replace the built-in GW2 patcher.
3 Biggest Software Lies:
- The program's fully tested and bug-free.
- We're working on the documentation.
- Of course we can modify it.

Note that we had to push back the release of the new launcher in order to switch to Wine Staging. However newer builds have an updater utility as a temporary replacement.
