Windows After roughly 12 years of work, the Wine Project is about to take its widely used Windows translation layer to a place it has not been in all that time: beta. Wine Project leader Alexandre Julliard, who has worked on the software nearly since its beginning in 1993 and maintained it since 1994, said in an interview yesterday that the beta release is "a matter of days away." He has since updated that forecast and said it would be released on Tuesday, October 25th.

Beta in respect to what version of windows?

One of the main reason that wine being forever-alpha is because it is playing constant catch up with newer windows.

Are they saying that they have now implement *most* of the winxp APIs? Or may be older Win9x API?

If it is still in a flux like the last CVS snapshot, I don't see why would it qualify as a beta.
