CrossOver Mac 6.2
CodeWeavers today released CrossOver Mac 6.2 and CrossOver Linux 6.2, delivering a significant speed increase for Outlook on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and adding support for the hit game title Team Fortress II out of the box. CrossOver Mac 6.2 users running Outlook on Mac OS X Leopard can expect a 50 percent speed increase on average over CrossOver Mac 6.1, according to the company, which has prepared a Web video comparing the experiences of those gamers using CrossOver vs. its competitors: VMWare and Parallels. "Frankly, this speed increase comes courtesy of Apple Computer, as we worked with them to identify and implement a fix in Leopard that helps our core compatibility technology -- Wine -- run to its full potential," said Jeremy White, CEO of CodeWeavers. Both versions of CrossOver are already shipping, according to CodeWeavers, with CrossOver Mac priced at $60 and CrossOver Linux Standard available for $40.
