Here are the 1.0 bug list changes since April 1:

Fixed (by Stefan D. and Lei):
5955   directx-        8       DirectDrawCreate crash on non-OpenGL desktop

New (by A.F. and Austin):
11420  advapi32        0       service control manager API problem:
name of named objects might differ (client vs. service process)

82    	document  	2  	Stabilize Winelib User Guide Table of Contents

We really shouldn't be adding any more 1.0 bugs at this point, but
the new one is well-analyzed, and is said to affect Visual Studio, 3dsmax,
and the copy protection scheme used by Autocad 2000, so what the heck.
That's probably the last of its ilk, though.

We're going to get a lot more cruel about deferring bugs
as we get closer to release.  For instance, issue 82.
Winelib is kind of a secondary issue... not a whole lot of
people should be using it, so it's probably ok to defer.
And 'probably ok' is getting to be a good enough reason.

Here's the full list of the 68 remaining bugs:
