    too bad the Debian repo does not have any newer builds since 1.1.42 and i can't build this on my 64-bit machine as it does not detect the fontconfig-dev headers

    Yeah and it's hilarious the fact that they created a different package called wine-unstable and that one is at version 1.1.42(the normal version of the package is so old that I'm not even sure it's still maintained)!

    I think only wine 1.0 and wine 1.2 are considered stable software by upstream. The other versions are considered to be unstable releases.

    Works for me on squeeze. Do you actually have those headers?

    That's not going to happen. We're currently in code freeze, which means only things like translations, tests, trivial bug fixes and regression fixes will enter the tree. As we'll get closer to release that will only get stricter. There won't be new features like a DIB engine between now and the final release. Aside from that, writing a DIB engine would be hard, and isn't much of a priority.

    Pretty much. The latest stable release is 1.0.1. The idea was to keep cherry picking patches to the stable branch after 1.0 was released, but the branches diverged pretty fast, and the stable branch never got much further than 1.0.1.

    I don't see any progress made on the "mouse is confined in an area" bug, and it seems to be quite a large bug that will require quite a lot of time to fix... Hopefully work on that will start soon, as it's in the blocker list.

    Well, at least there are only 73 bugs there compared to 84 before RC1, so that's progress. Although at that rate, the final Wine 1.2 will come after 1.2-RC16

    O RLY ?
    i'd just git pulled all WINE as i do every once in a while to test this and i delete it every time because of this

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
    checking for -lfreetype... not found
    configure: error: FreeType 32-bit development files not found. Fonts will not be built.
    Use the --without-freetype option if you really want this.
    dpkg --get-selections | grep libfreetype
    libfreetype6 install
    libfreetype6-dev install
    so then i thought that since this is a 64bit system maybe i'm lacking the 32bit libs, right, so i compared the files libfreetype6-dev for amd64 and i386 and the only differences were the libfreetype.la and freetype2.pc files so i put them in the /usr/lib32 and /usr/lib32/pkgconfig and run ldconfig to no use

    any other ideas ?

    BTW, the Ubuntu-wine-ppa was updated on the day...eh...

    fixed only these
    configure: libhal/libdbus 32-bit development files not found, no dynamic device support.
    configure: libmpg123 32-bit development files not found (or too old), mp3 codec won't be supported.
    configure: libopenal 32-bit development files not found (or too old), OpenAL won't be supported.
    as i don't need the others and it build ok

    Get over it: Ubuntu is just some glue that sticks and tapes FLOSS software pieces together so that end users can have a great Linux experience right now. That is their contribution.

    And it is not as if Canonical creates a lot of software and then turns around not to release it. Yeah OK that cloud thing, big fscking deal... If that makes Canonical have some income than so be it. There is also an official Ubuntu spin that has FLOSS only.
