Will beersmith ever be compatible with Linux?

Hi,
  BeerSmith can be run under Wine with some limitations.

  However the new version (BeerSmith 2) was built on a platform that can be compiled to run under Linux.  I'm hoping to work on actually porting the latest version to native Linux later this summer, though its not clear yet how hard that effort may be.  I'm leaning towards targeting Ubuntu initially.

Thankyou. Ubuntu is the build I am using. But I would think since all versions are built on the same core if it works on one it would work on all.
