Bordeaux Logo The Bordeaux developers have announced the release of version 2.0.0 of Bordeaux for Linux. Bordeaux is a GUI configuration manager add-on for Wine which is also available for Solaris, Mac OS X and BSD. Wine, which is an acronym for Wine Is Not an Emulator, is free open source software that allows users to run Windows applications on Linux and Unix by providing its own native versions of Windows DLLs.

The new release features a new shell based installer, support for Internet Explorer 7 and improved Microsoft Office 2007 support. Other supported applications include Microsoft Office 97, 2000, 2003, Visio 2003, Project 2003, Internet Explorer 6, Adobe Photoshop 6, 7, CS and CS2. Starting with version 2.0.0 and onward, the developers have also bundled their own build of Wine that includes the many tools and libraries that Wine depends upon; Bordeaux for Linux 2.0.0 includes version 1.1.36 of Wine. In the past customers were required to download and install the most recent version of Wine before using Bordeaux.

More details about the new version can be found in the release announcement and on the Bordeaux for Linux product page. Bordeaux for Linux 2.0.0 costs $20.00 (£12) and includes 6 months of upgrades and email support.
