Fedora Update Notification

Name        : wine
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 1.4
Release     : 1.fc17
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:

 * Improved crash dialog with support for saving the backtrace.
 * Support for the Back button in built-in Internet Explorer.
 * Keyboard accelerators can now be translated through po files.
 * A number of installer fixes.
 * Many translation updates and tweaks.
 * Various bug fixes.


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update wine' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.

All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.  More details on the
