PC-BSD gets Bordeaux 1.6
BSD fans can now get their hands on Bordeaux, a commercial front end to the Wine project. The development team today announced the release of Bordeaux 1.6 beta 1.
“Over the past month we have made some major progress on the BSD port of Bordeaux. Bordeaux for FreeBSD now has a .sh installer, the same one that we use on Linux, so you will need to have py-gtk installed for the installer to work properly.
“We also have a newly built .pbi for PC-BSD 7, a big thanks goes out to the folks at PC-BSD for doing the packaging for us. If you use PC-BSD you will need to install Wine 1.1.4 from their PBI directory in order for Bordeaux to work, prior versions of Wine in the directory don’t have support for wineprefixcreate.”
Some of the major changes in this build are that activex, flash and java are automatically installed when IE 6 is installed. Now IE 6 should open most pages that require activex support. “We have the back end of the new cellar-manager mostly done now, to see what changes are planed just run cellar-manager –help and you will see a list of all the planed features. This version also incorporates the newest winetricks script and the updates that have been made to it over the past couple months. and of course lots of tweaks and bug fixes.”
Bordeaux costs $20 and support, among others, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft Office 2000, Microsoft Office Visio 2003, Adobe Photoshop CS and Adobe Photoshop CS2.
