Hell is starting to freeze over.

A clickable version of the following info is at

Wine is now in a code freeze in preparation for the 1.0 release.

According to, wine-1.0.0-rc2
will be due out Friday, May 23rd, 2008. It will be something like be
the next to last release candidate for 1.0.

During the code freeze, patches that

    * are simple
    * come with a conformance test
    * fix a regression
    * are low risk

are more likely to get in than other patches. (Heck, that's always
true, but it's even truer during a freeze.) We will actively
discourage patches that might endanger a June 1.0 release.

Bug Status

There are 34 open 1.0 bugs as of 10 May.  Most of these will simply be
rolled over to be fixed for a later release; we only have time to fix
a few, and much as we'd like to fix the rest, most are not
