Bordeaux for Mac OS X systems coming soon

Bordeaux for Mac OS X

Bordeaux 1.8 is now running on current Mac OS X Leopard systems.


We have been working hard over the past month to get Bordeaux running on Mac OS X and all that hard work is starting to pay off. We now have everything compiling and running but like always more testing needs to be done before it's ready for final release.

The installer, Bordeaux programs, built-in Wine programs, bordeaux-winetricks, and a couple small test applications have been tested. The good news is everything that's been tested works very well and everything thus far tested has been stable.

Starting with the Mac OS X release of Bordeaux we are going to start bundling our own version of Wine. While this is allot more work, it will allow us to include some much sought after features that have been missing from vanilla Wine builds. For example the (always in the work's) DIB engine will be one of these new features. And with bundling Wine we can also Bundle in some other needed tools such as cabextract and unzip to make the use of Bordeaux and Wine as user friendly as possible.
