In an email to users, Codeweavers has just announced the release of CrossOver 12.5.0 for both Mac OS X and Linux. This is seen as a major step forward and includes the latest version of the Windows compatibility technology which underlies CrossOver: Wine 1.6. This new version brings countless improvements to application compatibility.

The Mac version has improved integration and the driver improves functions including drag-and-drop, command-tab switching, Dock and Menu Bar integration. There is also a new user interface for the Linux version. The Crossover release tells users that there is a list of launchers for all installed Windows applications present in CrossOver's main application window which should help in situations when desktop integration is found to be difficult to use.

This latest version of Crossover may be downloaded from the Codeweavers site, although Mac users with automatic updates should receive this without the need to visit the site.

Full information about the latest improvements to the software are available on the Crossover Change Log page.
