    Announcing CrossOver 12.1.0

    Hello all,

    I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released
    CrossOver 12.1 for both Mac OS X and Linux. We have made many
    substantial improvements between this release and 12.0.0.

    The behavior of several applications has improved in CrossOver 12.1.
    Our Quicken users will notice increased stability. We have fixed
    some problems with server connections in Outlook. We have also made
    various improvements to how the Microsoft Office suite runs under
    CrossOver: we have fixed a bug which caused adding a table of
    contents to a Word document to fail, among others.

    On the Mac OS, users of OS X 10.6.8 who may have experienced trouble
    with automatic updates in prior versions should see those problems
    resolved. Also on the Mac, many games are running better in
    full-screen mode than they did in our previous version. Finally,
    we have fixed an issue which caused some users to have to remove
    duplicate license files in order to keep CrossOver running.

    On Linux, we have resolved a crash for Ubuntu / Unity users
    running Guild Wars 2. We have also resolved some error messages
    which had been present in the terminal on start-up from the

    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 12.1 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 12.1 is included below.

    Thank you all for your support, and we hope you enjoy CrossOver 12.1!

    CrossOver 12.1 changelog:

    * CrossOver 12.1.0 - 2013/01/07


    - CrossOver no longer ships Wine-Mono, an open-source replacement
    for .Net, by default. We had started doing this for CrossOver 12
    but the large increase in download size and disk space usage proved
    too much. CrossOver can still download and install Wine-Mono
    - We have fixed a bug which caused CrossOver to print unnecessary
    error messages when launching Windows applications, complaining
    that certain icon files could not be found.
    - New translations for Polish & Chinese (China), and a partial
    translation for Italian.

    Mac OS X:

    - We have fixed a bug where certain users who chose
    "Register for all users of this computer" during CrossOver's
    registration would receive an error claiming their bottle had
    "expired" and could not be used, despite the user having a valid
    CrossOver license.
    - We have added a preference setting allowing the user to control
    what CrossOver does with an unknown Windows .exe file when it
    is launched. Using this preference, the user can tell CrossOver
    either to treat the unknown .exe file as an application installer,
    or to simply run it.
    - CrossOver will now auto-update CrossTie files if the user has
    permitted auto-updates of CrossOver itself via Sparkle.
    - Fixed a bug where automatic updates via Sparkle would fail for
    some users on OS X 10.6.8.
    - Fixed a bug which caused several games to fail when running in
    fullscreen mode. Games which should be improved include StarCraft,
    Fallout, and, we hope, many others.
    - Fixed a bug which prevented some users from logging into
    World of Tanks servers.


    - Running Guild Wars 2 on Ubuntu 12.04 with CrossOver 12 triggered a
    bug in the Compiz window manager which caused a CPU spike. We have
    added a registry key which can be used to disable the feature
    which caused Guild Wars 2 to trigger this bug, thus making the
    game playable with Compiz on Ubuntu.
    - Fixed an issue where the screen would go blank during the
    installation of some programs.

    Application Support:

    - Fixed connection errors with Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 when
    connecting to hosted Exchange servers.
    - Fixed a bug which caused adding a table of contents to a
    Microsoft Word document to fail.
    - Fixed an issue where Quicken failed to download WebConnect
    and QFX files.
    - Fixed an issue where Quicken crashed viewing investment details.
    - Fixed an issue where Quicken crashed when expanding columns
    in reports.
    - Fixed a bug which caused clicking on a promotional offer in Quicken
    to crash.
    - Fixed some connection failures with Quicken 2011.
    - Fixed an issue where rotated text was garbled in PowerPoint 2010.
    - Fixed a bug selecting shapes in Visio 2010.
    - Fixed a crash on launch in HCFA-1500.
