  • Mac OS X:

12.1.0 CrossOver - January 23, 2013
  • Mac OS X:
    • We have fixed a bug where certain users who chose "Register for all users of this computer" during CrossOver's registration would receive an error claiming their bottle had "expired" and could not be used, despite the user having a valid CrossOver license.
    • We have added a preference setting allowing the user to control what CrossOver does with an unknown Windows .exe file when it is launched. Using this preference, the user can tell CrossOver either to treat the unknown .exe file as an application installer, or to simply run it.
    • CrossOver will now auto-update CrossTie files if the user has permitted auto-updates of CrossOver itself via Sparkle.
    • Fixed a bug where automatic updates via Sparkle would fail for some users on OS X 10.6.8.

    • Fixed an issue where the screen would go blank during the installation of some programs.
  • CrossOver:
    • CrossOver no longer ships Wine-Mono, an open-source replacement for .Net, by default. We had started doing this for CrossOver 12 but the large increase in download size and disk space usage proved too much. CrossOver can still download and install Wine-Mono as-needed.

12.0.0 CrossOver - December 12, 2012
  • Mac OS X:
    • CrossOver now incorporates our experimental Mac Driver. With the Mac Driver, Windows programs running under CrossOver no longer have to use the X Window System to interact with the screen and keyboard. This feature is currently experimental but will become the way all CrossOver applications work on OS X in the future.
    • CrossOver has improved font handling for fonts used by certain applications, such as National Mah Jongg League Online.
  • Linux:
    • CrossOver Linux now installs a single desktop menu item rather than a multitude of desktop menus. This approach works better with desktop systems such as GNOME 3 and Unity, which usually don't have a hierarchical desktop menu structure.
    • CrossOver now has much better support for window transparency (layered windows) when a compositing window manager is available. (When the Mac Driver is complete, this feature will be available on OS X as well). Many transparent windows will now work that did not before.
      Improvements in this area include:
      • Microsoft Office applications in the Office 2003 and Office 2007 suites will now behave properly when working with embedded pictures or graphics. Previously, rotating or resizing embedded graphics caused the screen to go temporarily black;
      • Game launchers (such as that for Guild Wars 2, for example) which use color-keying to create transparent window areas will display properly rather than being drawn with black borders;
      • ...and many more.
    • We have resolved some issues which caused printers not to appear.
  • Application Support:
    • CrossOver now supports World of Tanks.
    • CrossOver now supports Quicken 2013.
    • CrossOver now supports installation of .Net 4.0.
    • CrossOver Linux now supports Guild Wars 2. Guild Wars 2 will run for many people on CrossOver Mac, but many users will encounter persistent graphics problems. Previously, CodeWeavers had released a specially-built version of CrossOver dedicated to running Guild Wars 2. That is no longer necessary.
    • Improvements to Microsoft Office:
      • Fixed a crash displaying certain email messages in Outlook 2010.
      • Outlook 2010 will now save passwords.
      • Improved Gmail and other IMAP connections with Outlook 2007.
      • Fixed auto-discovery during account configuration for Outlook 2007.
      • PowerPoint 2010 now displays equations in slide shows.
      • PowerPoint 2010 no longer displays blank slides.
      • Fixed bugs in Word 2010 which caused the equation editor to be missing structures and formulas.
      • Fixed a bug in Word 2010 related to footnote style choices.
      • Project 2007 and 2010 can now edit dates for recurring tasks.
      • Fixed a crash in Project 2010 when filtering by resource name.

    • CrossOver's built-in web browser will offer to download and install ActiveX controls.
    • CrossOver now comes bundled with the Wine-Mono package, an alternative implementation of the .Net API.
    • CrossOver now implements Raw Input, the set of APIs used for mouse input by games like Guild Wars 2, World of Tanks, and others.
    • Support for printing on a variety of paper sizes has been improved.
    • DirectSound has a new resampler, for higher quality audio.
    • CrossOver now has sub-pixel font anti-aliasing.

11.3.0 CrossOver XI - November 5, 2012

The X11 libraries in RHEL5 are sufficiently old that future versions of CrossOver will not work in RHEL5. An upgrade to RHEL6 or newer will be necessary to use future versions of CrossOver.

11.2.2 CrossOver XI Mac - September 21, 2012
  • Update for Compatibility with OS X 10.7.5 and 10.8.2:
  • This release fixes a bug which caused applications doing 3D drawing to fail to launch under CrossOver on Mac OS X 10.8.2 and 10.7.5. Because of this failure, many games, and some other applications, would not run using CrossOver on OS X 10.8.2 and 10.7.5.

    • Fixed XDG associations so that they now work with Evolution.

    • Made it easier to install multi-CD applications on Supermount systems.
    • Improved CrossOver's cxsu tool which is used to run commands as root so it automatically knows when to use sudo (e.g. on Ubuntu) and when to use su.
