Project listing

Our main goal is to provide a feasible and user-friendly way of supporting applications which are not compatible with the native application binary interface (ABI).

We effectively target the following three kinds of applicationsː

  1. Closed-source applications, such as Skype, which are not released for the native ABI or architecture;
  2. Applications interfacing with closed source applications, such as wine; and
  3. Applications which break when compiled for the native ABI.
