All major features of the software now work. Most magazines can be downloaded, viewed, and printed normally.
What does not
Several magazines reliably hang the software, including PC Magazine and Science.
The software occasionally and non-reproducibly hangs.
What was not tested
"Rich media" features.
I needed to install the Microsoft version of msxml3 and set Wine to Win98 emulation to get it to work after installation. The symptom of this being necessary is that magazines download correctly, but the software tells you that you don't have a license to view it (the license information is stored in XML files).
