Announcing CrossOver 8.0 for both Mac and Linux

Hi Folks,

I am pleased to announce that we have shipped CrossOver 8 for both
Macintosh and Linux. New in Version 8 is support for Internet Explorer 7
as well as support for Quicken 2009.

Version 8 also represents another year of dramatic growth in CrossOver and Wine.
You should see improvements across the board in all applications, not just
the ones we officially support. Of course, we hope you'll like the many
improvements we've made to Microsoft Office and Outlook as well.

A complete list of changes is included, below.

If you are an existing CrossOver customer with an active support entitlement,

You will need to log in with the email and password that you used when

help with this process.

Thanks again for all your support, and I hope that you enjoy CrossOver 8!
