Compatibility database contents and accuracy

In the middle of doing a clean install of Fedora 14 (64 bit) and re-installing my suite of apps, I found that a new version of CrossOver Linux is out. Hmmm... Perhaps I should upgrade...  In checking the change log and compatibility database on what was new, I noticed something odd.  All the versions of Microsoft Office (2003 and 2007) and Internet Explorer (6 and 7) that are mentioned in the change log are not marked as Supported-by-Codeweavers-Gold.  Only Office 2000 and 97 are listed as Gold and no version of IE.  Other than Office, the only apps listed as Gold supported are Flash 7 and some Tru-Type fonts.  Quicken and Quickbooks were not listed.  Weird.  When I bought the Pro 9 version, I could have sworn there were more apps listed with Gold support.  So I clicked the community supported apps button and went to look at some of the apps I have wanted (and tried to get working) in the past: XMLSpy 2004, Macromedia MX2004.  Wow.  They had Gold status.  But when I read the Macromedia MX2004 forum comments, all the latest posts (2007) said it did not work.  And while I got XMLSpy 2004 installed, it crashed constantly.

Sooo... Maybe someone needs to go through the list of applications and mark as Gold ones that Codeweavers is actually supporting and remove Gold status from those that do not work.

actually, NO,  Gold refers to that app & that cx version. - only.

for this reason, it's up to YOU, to run a test PC,
 & test your app with a later version of cx ....
- & post your result(s) into the database, to keep it up-to-data.  😖
