I’ve been out of the loop a few months, but some things haven’t changed:
-More Humble Bundles, yay!
-Updates to awesome projects like Dwarf Fortress, Minecraft, etc. are still being released.
-Phoronix still swears up and down that, like the Great Pumpkin, Source and Steam are coming, no really this time.
Anyhow, this April I aim to play a Linux game and write about it EVERY DAY. That’s every 24 hours. So. Hrm.
The Wine team is proud to announce that the stable release Wine 1.4
is now available.
This release represents 20 months of development effort and over
16,000 individual changes. The main highlights are the new DIB
graphics engine, a redesigned audio stack, and full support for
bidirectional text and character shaping.
It also contains a lot of improvements across the board, as well as
support for many new applications, notably Microsoft Office 2010. See
the release notes below for a summary of the major changes.
This release is dedicated to the memory of Gé (Greg) van Geldorp, who
passed away in May 2011. Greg single-handedly designed, built, and
maintained the Wine Testbot, which has become a cornerstone of our
development process. The high quality of this release owes a lot to
his work. He is greatly missed by us all.
