Fedora Update Notification

Name        : wine
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.3.33
Release     : 1.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.

 * Support for text output in the DIB engine.
