Hello everyone,

 I am happy to announce that we at CodeWeavers have released CrossOver 11.2.0 for both Mac and Linux!

 The main benefit of CrossOver 11.2.0 on the Mac is that it should run on Apple's upcoming release of OS X 10.8, "Mountain Lion," due out in July 2012.

 In addition, we have added support for Microsoft Visio 2010 and Microsoft Project 2010 on both Mac and Linux.  Another major feature is incorporation of Wine 1.4.1, which is a bug-fix release of Wine's stable 1.4 branch, and includes many improvements for a variety of applications.

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

 The complete changelog for CrossOver 11.2.0 is included below.

 We hope you enjoy this latest release of CrossOver, and we thank you for all of your support!

 Cheers,

      Josh DuBois

p.s. For anyone accustomed to seeing Jeremy White's name on these announcements, I will introduce myself.  I am Josh DuBois, CrossOver Product Manager here at CodeWeavers.  I am writing these to allow Jeremy to write code instead!  I am delighted to be here and announcing 11.2 is a pleasure.
