OSNews, Generic OSes The folks at WineHQ are gearing up for the second release of Wine. "The 64-bit support is now more or less complete, and we have most of the fancy new icons, so it's time to think about the next stable release. Unless some major problems come up, 1.1.44 will be the last of the 1.1.x series. The next release will be 1.2-rc1, which will mark the beginning of the code freeze. This should result in a 1.2 final sometime in June."

Does it mean that the emulator is considered stable, full-featured, i.e. near-perfect? I don't use Linux so I don't use Wine, just curious.

Freezing the code doesn't mean that. Every time a
project want to make a release, they "freeze" the code.

The freeze means no new features/functions are added
so they can concentrate on fixing any bug they can
find in the actual functionality.

Once the new release is published, the development
resumes as always, adding new things.
