While Wine 1.2 was expected for release in June, it didn't happen as when nearing the end of the month there ended up being a fifth release candidate as the blocker bug list still wasn't cleared. We're now into July and there are still 42 bugs blocking the release (the blocker bug) so here's a sixth release candidate.

Wine 1.2-rc6 just brings translation updates and bug-fixes. Since the release of Wine 1.2-rc5 a week ago, 48 bugs have been officially resolved. The release announcement with the fixed bug list can be found at Hopefully Wine 1.2 will be able to make it out in July as the first major stable update to Wine in over two years.
