OpenIndiana Logo The Bordeaux Technology Group has announced that it will release a version of its Bordeaux software later this month for OpenIndiana, which is a new fork based on OpenSolaris from the Illumos Foundation that aims to be binary and package compatible with Solaris 11 and Solaris 11 Express. Bordeaux is a GUI configuration manager add-on for Wine that is also available for Linux and BSD. Wine (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 replacements for Windows DLLs.

Bordeaux Logo The company says that it plans to have a stable 2.0.8 release of Bordeaux available in the "near future", adding that users can help support Bordeaux on OpenIndiana by purchasing Bordeaux for OpenSolaris now. Purchasers will receive the OpenIndiana release once testing has been completed and will be entitled to updates for the next six months. Additionally, should the Bordeaux Group sell 50 or more licences in the next month, they promise to "give OpenIndiana priority and release Bordeaux 3.0 for OpenIndiana first in our next release schedule".

More details about Bordeaux for OpenIndiana, including several screen shots, can be found in a press release. Bordeaux for OpenSolaris 2.0.x is available for $25.00 (£15.70) and includes 6 months of upgrades and email support. The latest stable release of Wine is version 1.2 from mid-July, which added support for 64-bit applications.
