Bordeaux Logo The Bordeaux developers have announced the release of version 2.0.0 of Bordeaux for Solaris and OpenSolaris. Bordeaux is a GUI configuration manager add-on for Wine and is also available for Linux 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.

In addition to preliminary support for Microsoft Office 2007 and Internet Explorer 7, Bordeaux 2.0.0 features support for Microsoft Office 97, 2000, 2003, Visio 2003, Project 2003, Internet Explorer 6, Adobe Photoshop 6, 7, CS and CS2. The developers note that, from version 2.0.0 and onward, they have bundled their own build of Wine, including the many tools and libraries that it depends upon. The Bordeaux 2.0.0 release includes version 1.1.36 of Wine, the latest development release. Previously customers were required to download and install the most recent version of Wine before using Bordeaux.

Bordeaux 2.0.0 is available for $25.00 (£15) and includes 6 months of upgrades and email support. The latest stable release of Wine is version 1.0.1.
