The WINE project will turn 15 years old this June, and to celebrate there will be the version 1.0 release of WINE (WINE Is Not an Emulator). The 1.0 release plan puts two release candidates in May and then the final release on June 6, 2008. If it's not ready by June 6, the 1.0 release will be pushed back to June 20 or July 4. The WINE 1.1.0 release would then come two weeks after the v1.0.0 availability. WINE 1.1.0 will be the new development branch while the stable 1.0 series will continue with new minor releases.

The WINE 1.0 Release Criteria states that Adobe Photoshop CS2, Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer 97/2003, Microsoft Word Viewer 97/2003, and Microsoft Excel Viewer 97/2003 all must work properly before this first stable release. At present are 101 bugs targeted to be fixed prior to WINE 1.0. Among these are support for animated cursors, documentation covering WINE debugging channels, Office XP 2002 crashing on installation, and drag and drop support.

Meanwhile, WINE 0.9.58 should be out this Friday.
