Another WINE

By Derek Sooman on
Another version of Wine has been released software that provides Windows emulation on Unix and Linux machines. Wine (a translation layer capable of running Windows applications on Linux and other POSIX compatible operating systems) was started as a project in 1993, and has been growing ever since. It is still pretty much under development, and is not yet suitable for general use.

The new release has more Web browser support, recursive directory change notifications, fully relocatable installation, Direct3D 8 and 9 now use the same code, debugger improvements, Systray is now handled by the explorer process and shedloads of bug fixes.
