Acknowledgement Page and Other Updates

We added an acknowledgement page last week to WineHQ. We'd like to thank everyone over the years who have made significant contributions to Wine.

Finally, Vincent Béron created a new download page for Red Hat based distros. Hopefully that will sort out some of the confusion concerning the sheer number of packages available.

AppDB and Developer Docs Update

November 9, 2004

If you've ever aspired to become a Wine hacker, you'll appreciate a quick introduction written by Mike Hearn. It's not a replacement for the Wine Developer Guide, but it does serve as an excellent starting point for working on Wine.

Also this week, Chris Morgan and Tony Lambregts modified the AppDB to allow folks to take over an application and become a maintainer. Then you can edit comments, change app descriptions, and all kinds of other cool stuff. If there's an app you regularly use under Wine, please consider maintaining an AppDB page and help track regressions. After you've set up a normal AppDB user account, you can become a maintainer by finding (or adding) an application and clicking on the maintainer button you'll find on each app's page. Have any ideas for improving the interface? Let us know!
