WineBottler Just bumping Wine to 1.7.35

Pushing Wine.app to 1.7.35.

As noted several times, WineBottler is standing on the shoulders of giants. Wine being one of them. Wine itself is supported by Software Freedom Conservancy, which is now launching an official supporter program:

Subject: Conservancy projects: help us launch the Official Conservancy 
Supporter program! 
Date: Wed, 03 Dec 2014 17:17:47 -0500 
From: Tony Sebro 


Hi, all: 

We at Conservancy are committed to doing whatever we can to support our 
member projects, and to help you produce great, freely-licensed software 
for the public's benefit. At this time, we could use the support of 
you, our member projects, as well. 

Today, Conservancy launched the official Conservancy Supporter program 
(http://sfconservancy.org/supporter/). This is our first campaign to 
build awareness about Conservancy, and our first attempt to really 
engage the public in a fundraising campaign. While we're glad to help 
you organize project-specific revenue-generating activities (e.g., 
project fundraisers, conferences, etc.), we've kept the percentage of 
revenue we receive from member projects under our FSA so low that it 
doesn't even pay for a single Conservancy staff member. So, we need our 
member projects' help to get the word out about who we are, what we do, 
and how friends of free and open source software can become Conservancy 
Supporters. 

Conservancy Supporters will receive: 
- an "Official Conservancy Supporter" badge for display on their 
personal websites; 
- a printable "Official Conservancy Supporter" card; and 
- a snazzy Conservancy T-Shirt. 
_ 
Ways__you can help spread the word_: 

- Follow @Conservancy on Twitter and/or Identi.ca 
- Tweet/Dent/Microblog about the Conservancy Supporter program on your 
social media platform of choice, with a link to the campaign page 
(please use the #ConservancySupporter hashtag) 
- If your project has an official social media account, please use that 
to microblog as well 
- Send email blasts to your project's mailing lists 
- Write a blog post or a testimonial about Conservancy (we'd really 
appreciate it) 

We thank you in advance for your support -- especially during this 
giving time of the year! 

Best, -Tony

WineBottler Improvements for Yosemite

Just a small update for WineBottler.

False positives for AV
As noted earlier, the no-op file winemenubuilder.exe triggered some anti virus checks. Starting with 1.7.34 it should pass them all.

Speaking of viruses
Please download WineBottler directly from http://winebottler.kronenberg.org – there are some “download”-websites” that bundle WineBottler into an installer that will install adware on your system, too.

UI Improvements
Tweaking the new look and adding it to the progress window.

Bugfixing
Fixed a bug, that prevented WineBottler from finishing custom Apps on some Yosemite Macs.

Pushing Wine.app to 1.7.34.

If you should still have issues with AV or generating custom Apps still freezes for you, please let me know.

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.
