Crossover 7.0 includes Office 2007 support
CodeWeavers, developer of software products that allow Mac and Linux users to run popular Windows software, has released CrossOver Mac 7.0 and CrossOver Linux 7.0.
Both version of CrossOver 7.0 include support for Microsoft Office 2007, including Outlook 2007, newer versions of Quicken, and the Adobe CS and CS2 line of products, in particular Photoshop.
CrossOver 7.0 also includes a number of the features of Wine 1.0, released earlier this week.
Another major benefit of 7.0 is that it includes many of the elements of the hotly anticipated release “CrossOver 7.0 contains many of the fixes that Wine 1.0 has, and will give users a great taste of what of the new version of Wine is capable of,” said Jeremy White, CodeWeavers’ chief executive officer. “We really feel that 1.0 will be a major step toward making Wine an application that will run all windows applications, and we’re excited for its release.”
One of the areas of greatest enhancement in Wine lies in its significantly enhanced support for ActiveX controls within Internet Explorer. “A recurring theme we hear is the ability to use CrossOver to access Active-X intensive webpages” said White. “This upgrade takes a giant step forward by expanding the websites that can be used on a Linux or Mac system.”
CrossOver Mac 7.0 Available in Standard and Pro Editions With this release, CrossOver Mac will now be offered in two versions – Standard and Pro. The Professional version features a longer support period, as well as a complimentary copy of CodeWeavers’ CrossOver Games, a recently released application that runs many popular Windows games such as World of Warcraft, Guild Wars, EVE Online, Call of Duty 2, Team Fortress 2, and most Steam games. CrossOver LinuxPro customers will receive the same offer.
