Name        : wine
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 1.3.1
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://www.winehq.org/
Summary     : A Windows 16/32/64 bit emulator
Description :
While Wine is usually thought of as a Windows(TM) emulator, the Wine
developers would prefer that users thought of Wine as a Windows
compatibility layer for UNIX. This package includes a program loader,
which allows unmodified Windows 3.x/9x/NT binaries to run on x86 and x86_64
Unixes. Wine does not require MS Windows, but it can use native system
.dll files if they are available.

In Fedora wine is a meta-package which will install everything needed for wine
to work smoothly. Smaller setups can be achieved by installing some of the
wine-* sub packages.

Update Information:

What's new in this release:   o Beginnings of a user interface for the builtin
Internet Explorer and support for favorites.   o Support for cross-process OLE
drag & drop and support for drag & drop between X11 and OLE.   o New builtin

o Open/save dialogs remember the last used directory.   o Beginnings of a shell
Explorer control.   o A number of DirectDraw code cleanups.   o Improvements to
