Announcing CrossOver 7.1.0 for both Mac and Linux
Hi Folks,

I am pleased to announce that we have shipped version 7.1 of our flag ship CrossOver products.

This version is largely a bug fix version; it particularly has a range of fixes for Microsoft Office, notably Outlook 2007.
You can see a full list of changes at the bottom, below.

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 if you need
help with this process.

We continue to be hard at work on upcoming CrossOver versions; we hope to ship a new version of CrossOver Games in the near future, and we're working to add support for the most current versions of Photoshop and Internet Explorer 7 in the mid term.

Thanks again for all of your support, and I hope you continue to enjoy CrossOver!
