Our plans for Bottles

We have several plans for Bottles' future, many features that take time and money to come true.

  • Library mode

    Already implemented as an experimental feature, this feature allow you to add any program from any bottle in a library view for easy access. We want to allow the user to launch Bottles in library mode only, for gaming purposes like on Steam Deck.

  • Per-bottle sandbox

    Already implemented as an experimental feature, this feature is a wrapper around bubblewrap an flatpak-spawn to make a sandbox per-bottle, allowing the user to limit permissions..

  • Layered bottles

    This is our solution for multiple environments in one bottle. This is currently a concept, but we are working on it.

  • Installers

    Now implemented!

    This is a feature in early development. It is an automated Windows software installation system based on a community driven repository and itis already available as an experimental feature in Bottles. Even if it already works, it still requires some work before reaching a stable release.

  • Dependencies manager

    Now implemented!

    This is the most important feature of Bottles. It is a dependency manager based on a community driven repository, that replace winetricks in Bottles and allows you to install software dependencies in a simple way. It is already available as a stable feature but it still in active development.

Bottles is (today) a project driven by the effort of a small developer team and the support of a magnificent community!
