Fedora Update Notification
2011-08-23 20:17:28

Name        : wine
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.3.26
Release     : 3.fc16
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:

 * Various improvements to the builtin Internet Explorer.
 * Support for Get/SetDIBits in the DIB engine.
 * Support for enhanced metafiles in the View tool.
 * Many improvements in WinHTTP.
 * A number of fixes to the COM stubless marshaller.
 * Improved mechanism for DLL registrations.

 * Rewrite of the audio support, using the Win7 architecture.
 * Old-style sound drivers for Jack, NAS and ESD are removed.
 * Graphics driver architecture changes for the DIB engine.
 * Improved handling of the shell recycle bin.
 * Better joystick support in DirectInput.
 * Initial stub for VBScript support.
 * Various bug fixes.
