SAINT PAUL, Minn (October 16, 2014) — CodeWeavers, Inc., developer of CrossOver—the easiest, fastest way to run Windows software on Mac and Linux, announced today the release of CrossOver 14. With CrossOver 14, you can run thousands of Windows software titles, without the need to buy a Windows OS license.
CrossOver 14 features support for Apple’s latest operating system release of Mac OS 10.10, more commonly known as “Yosemite,” which was released on 16 October, 2014. CrossOver 14 works “out-of-the-box” with Yosemite, and will give Mac users all the benefits from this much anticipated OS release.
CrossOver 14 contains support for many newer Windows applications, a prominent example being Quicken 2015. CrossOver also supports many games, including new support for the very popular Hearthstone (on Linux), as well as other titles such as Cube World, Path of Exile, Warcraft III, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Terraria, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and Xenonauts. CrossOver also runs thousands of other Windows titles of all types.
CrossOver 14 also includes the very latest release of Wine: Wine 1.7.25. Wine is an open-source software allowing Windows programs to be run on Unix-based operating systems without the need for Windows itself. Wine also delivers superior performance and simplicity compared with virtual machine. The latest release, Wine 1.7.25, embodies another year’s worth of Wine development, including nearly 5,000 new patches and application improvements to hundreds of different Windows applications.
CrossOver 14 is available immediately at www.CodeWeavers.com.
