A new Wine version has been released, now version 1.5.7. Since it is a development release, many successive versions will be released in a short period of time. The stable version of Wine is currently frozen in 1.4.1.

Here are the changes in Wine 1.5.7:

- New version of the Gecko engine based on Firefox 13.
- Dynamic device support with UDisks2.
- More stream classes implemented in the C++ runtime.
- Support for metadata in TIFF files.
- Fleshed out WBEM implementation.
- Improved support for printer paper sizes.
- Various bug fixes.

To install Wine 1.5.7 on Ubuntu 12.04/Linux Mint 13 or older, open the terminal and issue these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.5

If you prefer to install the stable version (Wine 1.4.1), run these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.4

That's it!
