Announcing CrossOver 9.1 and CrossOver Games 9.1

Hi Folks,

I am pleased to announce that we have shipped CrossOver 9.1 and CrossOver Games 9.1 for both Mac and Linux.

The primary feature of these releases is that they fully include all of the work from the Wine 1.2 release:
 http://www.winehq.org/news/2010071601
Wine 1.2 represents the hard work of over 300 authors, comprising over 23,000 separate changes.  CodeWeavers is proud to be the primary sponsor of the Wine project and I am personally thrilled that we are able to bring you a version of CrossOver that shares the many fine qualities of Wine 1.2.

If you use CrossOver for productivity applications, you should notice a range of improvements across the board.  Microsoft Office 2007 and Quicken 2010 users in particular should find a wide range of improvements.

If you are a gamer, we now officially support StarCraft II, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2,  Alien Swarm, and Star Trek Online.  Further, you should find substantial improvements in many other titles as well.

If you are an existing CrossOver customer with an active support entitlement,
you can visit our web site to download this latest version:

You will need to log in with the email and password that you used when
purchasing CrossOver.  Please write to info@codeweavers.com if you need
help with this process.

Thanks again for all your support, and I hope that you enjoy CrossOver 9.1!

Cheers,

Jeremy White
CEO
