WineHQ Site Updates

March 30, 2004

WineHQ has seen quite a few additions over the past week. We're now able to display the completion of various API's from release to release. The source to the Wine Application Database was released and is available via CVS (as well as browsable via LXR.) One of the first new additions linked apps to bugs filed in BugZilla. The To Do List has seen updates from several areas, including more things bumped into the DONE category. Finally, Mike McCormack suggested three new fun projects someone might be interested in tackling:
  • implementation of jscript.dll using Mozilla's SpiderMonkey
  • implementation of Image Color Management, mscms.dll, using Little CMS
  • implementation of cryptography functions using OpenSSL's libcrypto.so
