Wine 1.7.21 Released, but are there any Tizen Ports?

During MeeGo days we kept a close eye on Wine (“Wine Is Not an Emulator”) development, and now release 1.7.21 is available. At the moment I am not aware of any Tizen ports of Wine, and I would definitely be interested to see if anyone has made any progress.

During MeeGo days we kept a close eye on Wine ("Wine Is Not an Emulator") development, and now release 1.7.21 is available. At the moment I am not aware of any Tizen ports of Wine, and I would definitely be interested to see if anyone has made any progress.

What is Wine?

... is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.
 

What's new in this release (see below for details)

  • Support for critical sections in the C runtime.
