WineBottler Working on the UI

Finally got around to drop the skeuomorphism in WineBottler – it was kind of looking like an alien on Yosemite …

… but it looks like there is still some way to go, again :).

… and of corse we included the most recent Wine: Wine changelog: winehq.org.

WineBottler There is still some way to go

This should help with the most common troubles like IE8 or notepad++ not running.

Fixed …

  • defective .xib files repaired (aka unable to load nib file)
  • spotlight queries updated (aka new app would not launch at all)
  • if no argument present, the starter would pass ” ” as argument

… but it looks like there is still some way to go.

… and of corse we included the most recent Wine: Wine changelog: winehq.org.

WineBottler | 1.7.30

WineBottlerThis one is for Yosemite!

Fixes for Yosemite as well as the pesky “created Program not showing up” under “On My Mac” bug. Further added some dialogs if checksum is not matching… in my attempt to get further away from cryptic error logs :).

Checksums for Metatrader 4 & 5 are up to date again.

… and of corse we included the most recent Wine: Wine changelog: winehq.org.

WineBottler | 1.7.25

August 31st, 2014 by

WineBottlerUpdate for Bottlers and First-Time user.

The focus for this and the following builds lies on adding useful debugging information/help, as well as adding more advanced features for developers that want to bottle their own exes, mainly reducing the app weight.

We did start out with fixing a lot of bugs, which caused trouble for first-time users: mainly one that could lead to an immediate prefix abort on popular automated installs like Metatrader 4 and Notepad++.
Then we further tweaked the inner workings, so that the app feels more responsive on startup.
Next we went on with adding more log-messages and more “human readable” alerts for the most common error reports we get:

  • there is no internet connection
  • a file can not be written

Finally we started adding more advanced options for the developers:

  • optionally remove mono from the prefix (this will cut down the app weight by 200mb!)
  • add a Category Type to the app
  • add a Copyright string to the app

… and of corse we included the most recent Wine:
Wine changelog: winehq.org.
