Official WineHQ packages of the development and staging branches are now available for Mac OS X 10.8 and higher. Please test these packages and report any bugs at http://bugs.winehq.org.

Prerequisites:
1. XQuartz >= 2.7.7
2. Gatekeeper must not be set to block unsigned packages.

Installing:
Both .pkg files and tarball archives are available at https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macosx.

Installing from a .pkg file is recommended for inexperienced users.

To install the .pkg file, double-click on the package, and the usual Mac OS X installer wizard should open. The process should be self-explanatory. It is possible to install the package either for all users (needs administrator privileges), or just for your current user. After the installation is finished, you should find an entry "Wine Staging" or "Wine Devel" in your Launchpad. By clicking on it, a new Terminal window opens with a short introduction into some important wine commands. You can now directly start wine/winecfg/... from the Terminal, as the PATH variable is set correctly. For user convenience, the package also associates itself with all *.exe files, which means you can run windows executables just by double-clicking on them. (This might not work for all executables though, since OS X doesn't seem to pass the current working directory to the "Open With" handler.)

To install from a tarball archive, simply unpack it into any directory. There is no need to set DYLD_* environment variables; all paths are relative, so it should work as long as the directory structure is preserved (you can skip the /usr prefix though using --strip-components 1).

For more information, see https://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-d ... 10990.html.
