The Class Status is automatically generated, based on [ToDo] tags and
other stuff. It does not indicate that 76% of SWF are properly working.

The debug output is normal. We've changed a lot since 0.28, not only the
wine integration, but also System.Drawing and libgdiplus. It is alpha
code, alpha code will have debug statements. We have 'hacks' in the code
that have printfs associated to ensure they are not forgotten, there are
printfs to support developing a particular feature, etc. The more complete
libgdiplus, SD and SWF get, the fewer debug statements you will see.
