Oh, he does indeed, all I meant to say is that Wine releases
are worthy headline news, and if we are to have a "Latest news"
box, than we can do away with the "Latest Release". BTW, a headline
news announcement may work better than the current "Latest Release" box:
it will have a clear date, the "WHAT'S NEW" will be immediately visible
(as a matter of fact, I figured only last Friday that clicking on the
release name gives you the ANNOUNCEMENT file!), and we can make it a
lot more fun (like nicknaming some releases, etc.). But this is really
besides the point, sorry for the big parenthesis.

Correct. However, I was referring to new releases of CrossOffice,
CrossOver Plugin, WineX, etc. Which I hope you agree they fit in
very nicely.

Of course you want to pick and choose, any good news source does that.
The other alternatives are no headlines (bad IMO) or too much noise
(equally bad). We should not be afraid of picking and choosing. You
do that for WWN, and you do an excellent job.

Anyhow, we are now starting to discuss policy about what goes in
the headlines. This is an entirely different issue, and I don't
think we need "official" policy, just someone with common sense. :)
However, before we start discussing this, we need to see if we're
getting such a box, I feel a bit like Don Quixote here... :/
