CodeWeavers Installer Challenge

July 19, 2005

Do you have a program that just won't install with Wine? CodeWeavers accounced a major initiative today to get programs to install with a current copy of either Wine or CrossOver. If your application just won't install, CodeWeavers promises to fix the bugs in Wine preventing installation. In return, you get to write a regression test that can be run to make sure future changes don't break your installation. It's a win-win situation for you, Wine, and CodeWeavers. For details check out the instructions for the Installer Challenge.

WineConf 2005 Wrap Up

May 1, 2005

WineConf 2005 has wrapped up. Everyone had a great time, albeit pretty tired. We have a bunch of people that really helped out and it's amazing how many people worked on a pretty seamless event. Mr. Ulrich Gemkow with the University of Stuttgart put together the venue and organized the local student organization, Fachschaft Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik (pictured above). Finally, the Wirtschaftsförderung Region Stuttgart, David Gümbel with ITOMIG, and Jeremy White of CodeWeavers provided a bunch of behind the scenes support, including financial help. Thanks everyone!

We'll try to post a full summary in a few days. We recorded the presentations, so hopefully we can get those up as well.
