Software Update: Wine 1.1.24

A new development build of Wine was released on Friday. Wine is contributed by a large group of developers, which is why it was decided to release a new build every two weeks, instead of waiting for a number of new features to be ready. Wine, an open source implementation of the Windows API, makes it possible to run DOS and Windows programs on Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X, among others. The database with applications running under Wine, with or without some minor tweaks, it contains 12,077 titles at the time of writing, 63 more than two weeks ago.
