Press Release

Bordeaux for Mac OSX 1.8 status update

First I'd like to apologize to those of you following this list and waiting on a new Mac build. We plan on having the new build out in just a few more days. I'd like to go ahead and give you a rundown of the new features in what we hope will be the final release.

1. IE7 Support
2. Application Bundle support for all Win32 Applications
3. Much improved and responsive Bordeaux Setup and Cellar Manager applications

There are still some glitches such as the Application bundles don't yet have the proper icons but we are working on that and hope to have it addressed in the 2.0 build. Part of the holdup is that our patches to Winehq to support Application Bundle generation have been going through very strict review to get in the winehq tree.

You will find attached two screenshots, the first is showing the old Bordeaux Setup on the left and the New Bordeaux Setup on the right. As you can see we've got nice new Aqua styles as well as have gotten rid of that annoying double Dock icon bug.

Their is no free demo of Bordeaux available at this time, this will also change with the 2.x release but instead of a time restricted demo Bordeaux 2.x will have a free non restricted limited version that will install a couple standard applications and let the user get a feel for the application. Then if they choose they can purchase the full version and have access to all the supported applications and support.
