CrossOver Changelog

New in version 14.0.0

October 16th, 2014
  • Linux:
  • CrossOver can now automatically detect and install missing packages on many Linux distributions, making it easier to get the packages you need. CrossOver will attempt to install a minimal set of packages on first-run, and will also attempt to install packages needed by specific Windows applications when those Windows applications are installed.
  • CrossOver has fixed a bug with the way it uses threads in GTK (this bug fix allows CrossOver to run on Ubuntu 14.10).
  • CrossOver should now detect proxy settings on systems which use GSettings.
  • Fixed proxy detection for certain KDE configurations.
