Installs, runs, can create a new project with chapters and scenes, add text to scenes, add characters/locations/items.
Does not use any custom controls, databases or dlls. Was designed to be wine/mono friendly.
See comment about winetricks comctl32 below.

What was not tested
Haven't had time to check everything yet, just wanted to post an updated entry for yWriter5 so users could run it
You need to run winetricks dotnet2sp2 and comctl32 (without the latter, context menus will not appear on listviews when you right-click.) Richtext control 2.0 may also be required.

MUST install mono for yWriter to run. However upon project creation yWriter freezes.
