    That is okay I guess, although I do wonder why they did not just hold off on testing until they could actually make a fully native build?

    Thanks!

    Without the sources, this "sophisticated wrapper" can only be WINE then, not even WINELIB.

    Well, they likely do have the source for the older version that runs on windows. They just have to wait to get the new linux source code.

    Does anyone know when it will be actually available? It was on sale today for 2 or so but it's still not available "for my platform".
