Availability of Experimental builds of CrossOver, including a BSD build

Hi Folks,

I am happy to announce that we are now making available 'cutting edge'
builds of CrossOver.  To start, we are providing experimental builds of
CrossOver Games for Linux, Mac OS X, and now BSD systems.

We remain committed to providing our customers with a stable, and
reliable product; one that has been tested thoroughly.  So even though
we are the major driving force behind Wine, CrossOver always lags
behind Wine so that we can do careful development and testing.

Further, we feel strongly that most of our customers are best served
by the stable, shipping version of CrossOver.

Of course, that leaves out a few of our customers who would be well
served by these cutting edge builds, and it also sometimes frustrates
our developers, who like to be able to make their work available
to our customers more rapidly.

So starting today, our CrossOver Games customers are able to
dip their toe into the 'cutting edge' and download an experimental build.
This also marks the first time we've provided a build of any kind
for BSD users.

To do so, you must first login to our web site, and then visit this web page:
  http://www.codeweavers.com/account/downloads/?_dl=unsupported

                   *PLEASE NOTE*
This is not for everyone.  In fact, most people should just delete
this email and pretend they never saw it.  If you are not technically
savvy, and willing to suffer the problems that *will* arise with
experimental builds, you should stay away.  If you're not willing to
have any problems you report be completely ignored by us, you should
stay away.  But if you like to play with the bleeding edge, or perhaps
have a problem that you know we've solved in Wine, then maybe, just maybe,
this will bring you some joy.

Cheers,

Jeremy
