Announcing CrossOver 12.2.0

Hello all,

 I am pleased to announce the release of CodeWeavers CrossOver
 12.2.0 for both Mac OS X and Linux.  We have made many
 substantial improvements to CrossOver since our last release.

 In this release, as in our last one, we have made Quicken more
 stable and usable.  We have made improvements to some games running
 in full-screen mode, including Wizard 101.  We have improved the
 stability of Office 2007, and fixed a bug with running applications
 that rely on the .Net 4.0 Framework.  For Chinese-language speakers,
 we have fixed a bug which caused Traditional Chinese to be used
 even when a user's preferences were set to Simplified Chinese.

 On the Mac OS, we have continued to improve our new Mac Driver
 technology.  This release includes support for drag and drop in the
 Mac Driver, as well as changes which should improve the visual
 experience and reduce window flicker.  The Mac Driver is maturing
 rapidly and will be the default option in our next major release.
 All experienced CrossOver users are invited to turn it on and see
 how it works.

 With the recent release of Ubuntu 13.04, we experienced another bug
 which caused CrossOver to fail to register itself.  This release
 fixes that, and is back-dated so any user who had support when 13.04
 was released a few days ago will be able to download and install
 CrossOver 12.2.0.

 Lastly, for any interested games, the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter
 beta started today and it is running in CrossOver 12.2.0.  

 As always, if you are an existing customer with an active support
 entitlement, you can download our latest version from
 <> and use it.  Mac customers who have
 automatic updates enabled and who are entitled to this update will
 receive it automatically.  

 If CrossOver 12.2 asks you for registration credentials, use the same
 email and password which you used to purchase CrossOver from
 <>.  If you have any trouble, email for help.

 A complete changelog for CrossOver 12.2 is included below.

 Thank you all for your support, and we hope you enjoy CrossOver 12.2!
