The latest version of Orbiter has been released on August 30, 2016. The new release provides support for elevation modelling of planetary surfaces, higher texture resolution for surfaces and cloud layers, including Landsat-based textures for Earth, and a host of other improvements to the physics and visualisation engines.
Orbiter.exe works correctly, with only small issues from time to time.
What does not
Orbiter_ng.exe - the file runs correctly, but always when I tried to launch a scenario the game crashed because of a fatal error in D3D9Client.
What was not tested
No addons were tested, only the default distribution of the game.
Run this command before running Orbiter: winetricks d3dx10 d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 corefonts
