New Version of Groundbreaking Windows-To-Linux® Software Also Provides Full Support For All Western Language Versions of Microsoft Office, Dramatically Improved Fonts.
ST. PAUL, MN-(June 11, 2002)-CodeWeavers, Inc., a leading Windows®-to-UNIX® software developer, today unveiled CrossOver Office® Version 1.1, the newest version of its breakthrough software solution that allows Linux users to operate Microsoft Office and Lotus Notes® on their PCs without requiring a license for the Windows operating system.
With Version 1.1, CodeWeavers is officially supporting both Microsoft Outlook and Internet Explorer, in addition to the already-supported Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and IBM Lotus Notes. This enables organizations to make the transition to a Linux desktop without having to completely replace their internal systems. "With Outlook and Internet Explorer support, we feel that we have rounded out the most important features of the Microsoft Office Suite, and have made it simple and painless for an organization to adopt the Linux desktop" said Jeremy White, founder and CEO of CodeWeavers.
Outlook and Internet Explorer Support in Multiple Languages.
Version 1.1 provides support for most Western languages, including German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and many more. "The support for Portuguese was something invaluable that will enable wide scale use for both private and government institutions. It will close one of the last issues preventing nationwide adoption of Linux," said Rodrigo Barbosa Chief Security Officer of TIS, a Brazilian IT company.
CodeWeavers expects to complete support for double byte languages such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean in the near future, which will then complete the CrossOver language support.
Best TrueType® Reproduction in Linux
CrossOver Office now includes the logic necessary to exactly reproduce Apple TrueType fonts in Linux, so that all Windows fonts appear as cleanly and crisply in CrossOver as they do in Windows. This extends to printed documents which now precisely match those printed on Windows. Version 1.1 also provides a wide range of other bug fixes and enhancements, including better support for document automation.
CrossOver Office is priced at $54.95 per user, with workgroup, site, and enterprise license discounts available. For additional information, and to purchase CrossOver Office or other Windows-to-Linux porting solutions, visit www.codeweavers.com or call (651) 523-9300.
