Celebrating Wine 1.2 with a public Beta

Last Friday the Wine Project shipped Wine 1.2. This was the work of 328 people in over 23,000 separate patches over a span of two years.

CodeWeavers is proud to be a major part of that effort and we're thrilled to see Wine reach this milestone. This represents a major step forward for Wine; you can see the full list of accomplishments in the announcement. My personal favorite is the spiffy new icons.

The CrossOver products already contain most of those changes, as we roll our work on Wine into CrossOver as we go. However, we are hard at work on CrossOver 9.1 and CrossOver Games 9.1, which will contain all of Wine 1.2.

By way of celebrating, we're making beta versions of CrossOver 9.1 and CrossOver Games 9.1 available to all current customers. If you are a current customer, you can download the beta from your account.

Of course, we only recommend the beta for folks that enjoy bleeding edge software. If you don't enjoy the thrill of something right on the edge, you should wait a week or two until we finish putting the polish on the official 9.1 releases.

Microsoft Office 2007 is not able to be installed with this release. It fails at the .NET install portion, being unable to move on the entire Office install fails. I realize this is a beta but someone should know.

It turns out the dotnetfx.exe installer kept getting corrupt on download. I'm not sure if this was WINE or my connection. I manually downloaded the dotnetfx.exe installer from my web browser, replaced it with the version in my WINE cache, and we're good to go now.

I can confirm it does install. Just installed MSO 2007 Pro Plus in the new bottle and upgraded it to SP2.
