Announcing CrossOver 18.5.0

Hello all,

I am very pleased to announce that CodeWeavers has just released CrossOver 18.5.0 for both macOS and Linux!

CrossOver’s core technology Wine has been updated to version 4.0.

CrossOver 18.5 includes the FAudio library to provide superior audio support for games. FAudio is a reimplementation of XAudio2, a low-level audio library for Windows. This improvement broadens CrossOver’s game compatibility and resolves a wide variety of audio bugs on both macOS and Linux.

CrossOver 18.5 resolves several Office 2010 bugs related to activation and licensing. The first involves a change which disrupted the activation status of Office 2010 bottles upgraded from CrossOver 17.x and earlier to CrossOver 18.x. Users who experienced persistent activation requests on earlier releases of CrossOver 18 should be able to successfully activate Office 2010 on CrossOver 18.5. We have also resolved a bug which caused Office 2010 to attempt and fail configuration on every launch for some users.

On Linux, CrossOver 18.5 supports the very latest release of Office 365 and resolves a sign-in bug impacting Office 365 Home users.

Finally, CrossOver 18.5 includes preliminary support for OneNote 2016 on Linux.

Mac customers with active support entitlements will be upgraded to CrossOver 18.5 the next time they launch CrossOver.  Linux users can download the latest version from http://www.codeweavers.com/account/downloads .

If CrossOver asks for registration, use your codeweavers.com email address & password to register and unlock CrossOver.  Email info@codeweavers.com if you need more help.

Thank you all for your support. We hope you enjoy CrossOver 18.5!
