Wine 1.0 will be released in June'08 Imprimer
Écrit par mrcgran   
Wine has just published a release plan. Wine 1.0 will be released on 6 June 2008 or shortly after, to celebrate its 15th anniversary: 'To give the 1.0 release some concrete meaning, we have chosen a few key apps (see WineReleaseCriteria; in particular, Photoshop CS2) that should run well with Wine 1.0. Those apps all run reasonably well now. The only thing that could stop the 1.0.0 release are regressions in those key apps.

View English part at the end of this article

Voici le contenu d'un message expédié à un ami. J'ai pensé le publier ici parce qu'il est primordial pour quiconque de prendre connaissance de ces faits avant de s'aventurer dans la suggestion de toute solution face à la crise de l'énergie.
