Install Wine 2.0.1 Stable On Ubuntu Linux

Wine 2.0.1 released. Install Wine 2.0.1 on Ubuntu Linux Systems. The Wine maintenance release 2.0.1 is now available. Wine 2.0.1 comes with various bug fixes and deprecated tools/wineinstall. A total of 47 bugs have been fixed in Wine 2.0.1.

Make a note that the official Wine repository has been moved. The announcement reads:

In order to provide the possibility for Wine developers to create their own builds through our system, we had to move away from Launchpad. This will also have the advantage that we can provide older builds. The disadvantage of this change is that our users will have to manually switch from the PPA to the new repository, since there is no way to push prebuilt Debian/Ubuntu packages into a PPA on Launchpad (not even with a commercial subscription).

The new system can not only be controlled using a command line utility but also provides an easy to use website which gives us the possibility to provide some great new features. Interested Wine developers will be able to request access to the system so that they can start their own builds. This can for example be used to provide a patched Wine version for testing in a bug report or to verify that a patch is compatible with all platforms and compilers.
