This is release 20040309 of Wine, a free implementation of Windows on
Unix.  This is still a developers only release.  There are many bugs
and unimplemented features.  Most applications still do not work

WHAT'S NEW with Wine-20040309: (see ChangeLog for details)
        - Much improved winegcc tool, now used to build Wine itself.
        - VxDs are now separate libraries for better modularity.
        - Improvements and simplifications to the drive configuration.
        - New setupapi INF script to create the initial registry.
        - Many improvements to the various multimedia dlls.
        - Lots of bug fixes.
