    Announcing CrossOver 12.2.0

    Hello all,

    I am pleased to announce the release of CodeWeavers CrossOver
    12.2.0 for both Mac OS X and Linux. We have made many
    substantial improvements to CrossOver since our last release.

    In this release, as in our last one, we have made Quicken more
    stable and usable. We have made improvements to some games running
    in full-screen mode, including Wizard 101. We have improved the
    stability of Office 2007, and fixed a bug with running applications
    that rely on the .Net 4.0 Framework. For Chinese-language speakers,
    we have fixed a bug which caused Traditional Chinese to be used
    even when a user's preferences were set to Simplified Chinese.

    On the Mac OS, we have continued to improve our new Mac Driver
    technology. This release includes support for drag and drop in the
    Mac Driver, as well as changes which should improve the visual
    experience and reduce window flicker. The Mac Driver is maturing
    rapidly and will be the default option in our next major release.
    All experienced CrossOver users are invited to turn it on and see
    how it works.

    With the recent release of Ubuntu 13.04, we experienced another bug
    which caused CrossOver to fail to register itself. This release
    fixes that, and is back-dated so any user who had support when 13.04
    was released a few days ago will be able to download and install
    CrossOver 12.2.0.

    Lastly, for any interested games, the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter
    beta started today and it is running in CrossOver 12.2.0.

    As always, if you are an existing customer with an active support
    entitlement, you can download our latest version from
    <http://www.codeweavers.com> and use it. Mac customers who have
    automatic updates enabled and who are entitled to this update will
    receive it automatically.

    If CrossOver 12.2 asks you for registration credentials, use the same
    email and password which you used to purchase CrossOver from
    <http://www.codeweavers.com>. If you have any trouble, email
    info@codeweavers.com for help.

    A complete changelog for CrossOver 12.2 is included below.

    Thank you all for your support, and we hope you enjoy CrossOver 12.2!

    Anyone played with this yet? What do you think about it. I haven't had a chance to download and evaluate it yet.

    I've pretty much abandoned Crossover since I've had 90% success with PlayOnLinux.
    Crossover doesn't provide anything more than I can already get with PlayOnLinux. It pretty much does the same thing and all the same games work the.... well... same!
