CodeWeavers Announces CrossOver 15.1.0

Announcing CrossOver 15.1.0

Hello all,

I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released
CrossOver 15.1.0 for both Mac OS X and Linux. CrossOver 15.1.0 has
improvements for both OS X and Linux users.

CrossOver 15.1.0 includes a new wine version based on Wine 1.8.1.
Wine 1.8.1 is the latest and greatest Wine release: a stable Wine
version incorporating fixes for bugs found in Wine 1.8.0.

CrossOver 15.1.0 also includes bug fixes for the popular games Heroes
of the Storm and World of Warcraft: any users who run those games will
want to install this update.

Mac customers will benefit from fewer conflicts with custom Python
installations and from improved behavior in our software installer.
In this release we also have improved support for Japanese users of
Microsoft Office with CrossOver on the Mac.

Mac customers with active support entitlements will be automatically
upgraded to CrossOver 15.1.0 the next time they launch CrossOver.
Linux users can download the latest version from

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

Thank you all for your support, and we hope you enjoy CrossOver 15.1.0!

    • Improved some confusing behavior in CrossOver's Software

      looking for compatible bottles.

      cause Steam to fail.
    • Fixed a bug in setting CrossOver's anti-virus scanner from a
      configuration file.

    • Fixed a bug which caused Heroes of the Storm to freeze.

    • Fixed some graphical problems in Alekhine's Gun on Intel graphics
