Crossover XI merges Pro and Games, runs more Windows apps on Mac

Friday, March 9, 2012

CodeWeavers has released Crossover XI, a major new version of software that runs Windows applications directly in Mac OS X and Linux, without using Windows itself. The new version merges CrossOver Games and CrossOver Pro, supporting all of the Windows applications and games of both former editions. Crossover XI also adds support for dozens of additional Windows applications, according to CodeWeavers, including Quicken 2012 and Microsoft Office 2010.

CrossOver XI is now based on Wine 1.4 engine, the latest version of CrossOver's underlying emulation engine, which includes over 11,000 improvements. These include faster screen drawing in some circumstances and better audio.

Crossover XI also includes a number of fixes and improvements for running Microsoft Office for Windows, including Outlook for Windows, as well as installation improvements.

CrossOver XI starts at US $40 and requires OS X 10.5.8 or later. Because it doesn't require Windows, CrossOver is the least expensive way to run Windows applications on a Mac or a Linux PC.
