Last version without unicode
Installs fine out-of-the-box. Opens my existing FM .book and .fm files fine. I could create an equation box, but special math symbols are mucked up. Font mapping is probably not quite right with math fonts since "normal" PS fonts do not appear available in font selection box. I can create a new anchored frame and the FM drawing tools appear to work.
Was able to "update references" and rebuild multi-file document books.
I did no tweaks to FM or WINE, so with a bit of effort I bet that FM7.2 could be close to "platinum" under WINE
What does not
Fonts need a bit of help. Maybe fixed by adjusting FM and WINE's presentation of the "font" folders
What was not tested
Did not try full export to various output formats.
My FM version is 7.2b144.
