    CrossOver 14.1.11 для Mac OS

     CrossOver 14.1.11 для Mac OS - Программа, позволяющая запускать многие приложения, написанные для ОС Microsoft Windows в Mac OS X, причём наличие при этом установленной Windows не требуется. CrossOver отличается от Wine более узкой направленностью: он нацелен на поддержку наиболее востребованных офисных и иных приложений Windows, таких как Microsoft Office разных версий, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Lotus Notes, Adobe Photoshop и другие. Но зато совместимость с этими приложениями тщательно тестируется и отлаживается, так что их работа обычно бывает стабильнее, чем в Wine.

    А если вы используете этот скидочный код ( CXRossiya ) вы можете сэкономить дополнительные 25% от $20.95 цене.

    Microsoft Office 2013 and World of Tanks Support to Arrive in Wine and CrossOver

    CodeWeavers, the company behind projects like CrossOver and Wine, has announced that it's making great progress with Microsoft Office 2013 and World of Tanks, among other things.

    Wine is a powerful tool, but developers need to constantly work on it, as Windows apps and environment are always changing and evolving. Something that runs today in Wine or CrossOver might now work tomorrow. Another difficult task is to make certain apps run in the first place, like Microsoft Office 2013, for instance. If you ever install Microsoft Office 2013 in Windows, you'll notice that it comes with a myriad of DLL and various other important dependencies, so you can always imagine what a difficult task it is to make it work in Linux.

    Another point of interest is World of Tanks, which happens to be one of the most played MMO titles right now. The fact that Linux users have a hard time playing it is not a good thing, and CodeWeavers knows this all too well. They are working right now to correct that problem, and they've already made some progress in this regard, especially for the latest World of Tanks 9.9 update, which seems to create some issues.

    CodeWeavers is not sitting idle


    The developers from CodeWeavers are planning to make some improvements in the upcoming CrossOver and Wine versions, and that includes all the fixes mentioned above.

    "With World of Tanks we began by triaging a crash that started with the 9.9 update. We fixed the issue quickly and sent a new build to Wargaming. We followed this with a fix for a severe drop in frame-rates with the 9.9 update. A fix for the frame rate issue and a mouse offset issue is on its way to Wargaming now. For CrossOver 14, we tested fixes with Microsoft Office 2010's behavior on dual screen systems. This includes full-screen maximize/minimize the behavior of primary and secondary screens on Gnome Classic and Gnome Shell with Metacity and Debian 7," wrote Caron Wills from CodeWeavers.

    New mobile wineskin website and forums coming soon

    New mobile wineskin winery website and forums coming soon.

    I'm planning on revamping this website. The current plan is I'll make pretty much the entire website from scratch, as it's really all static data besides news updates, so it's not too difficult. The plan is to make it responsive so it'll look and work right on anything from phones to desktops.

    The issue comes down to... I don't want to try to make a Forum from scratch. I'd like to find one I can integrate in easy and will work good, including a responsive design.

    I'd like input if anyone has anything I should look at that would be easy enough to use and would work good for the website here.

    What we need i can think of...
    • Open Source
    • Easy to modify the looks/appearance
    • Responsive design
    • Can allow moderated anonymous posts like now
    • Allows users to also make accounts, so trusted users don't have to go through moderation.
    • easy to search and find posts for users looking for answers to questions
    • Will last and be well supported for years to come

    Anything else anyone can think of? I haven't messed with Forum software much in years, but anything has to be better than this one... going to dump all of Tiki software.

    Start of code freeze

    Folks,

    Now that release 1.7.55 is out, it's time to start code freeze towards the stable 1.8 release. This means that from now on, new features or code redesigns won't be accepted; only targeted bug fixes that don't look too dangerous will be allowed in. The freeze will get increasingly more strict as we progress towards release.

    I know that git makes it easy for everybody to keep working on new things on their own branch, but I'd ask that we all take time to concentrate on fixing bugs, and particularly regressions. I'm hoping that we can make the number of regressions drop significantly, like we did for the previous stable releases.

    I will be making release candidates every Friday until we run out of bugs that can be reasonably fixed. Based on previous experience, the code freeze should last between 4 and 8 weeks.

    This is also an opportunity to polish things like translations, documentation, web site etc. so there is plenty to do even for non-developers. And most importantly, we need help with retesting as many applications as possible...

    Thank you all for your help!

    How to Install GardenCAD on Mac with CrossOver

    We are asked about Windows software running in CrossOver all the time. The range of programs varies so much that it's always questionable on what it might take to get the application running. Most of the time, it's easy.

    Recently, we received a request for a second look at GardenCAD and it's big brother, gCADPlus. To our surprise, the team for gCADPlus checked us out a few years ago and put together a handy walk-through for our product.

    What they didn't know, we've made it easier than ever to install an unsupported program, like GardenCAD. To be clear, an unsupported program is a Windows program that has not been regularly tested by a member of the CodeWeavers team. Before we get too far, let's talk about what it takes to install an unsupported program.

    First, open CrossOver (on your Mac today):

    CrossOver Opening Screen
    After you click on "Install a Windows Application", search for your application:

    Search for gCAD
    When your application doesn't show up, it's some "Other Application" that CrossOver doesn't know about... and that's okay. More applications than ever run in CrossOver.

    There's no reason to give up here, make the selection of "Other Application" and open the next section of CrossOver, Select an Installer and click "Choose Installer File":

    Choose Installer File...
    Show CrossOver where your installer file is, highlight it and click, "Use this Installer":

    Use This Installer
    CrossOver will look like this:

    CrossOver and gCADplus
    Click Install!

    For gCADplus, the installer starts, completes and gCADplus launches!

    gCADplus Launches
    And, it does things:

    gCADplus in CrossOver
    It really is that easy!

    Microsoft Office 2013 on Linux with CodeWeavers CrossOver

    Microsoft Office 2013 (code named Office 15) is a version of Microsoft Office, a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows. It is the successor to Microsoft Office 2010 and the predecessor to Microsoft Office 2016. It includes extended file format support, user interface updates and support for touch among its new features. Office 2013 is suitable for IA-32 and x64 systems and requires Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 or a later version of either. A version of Office 2013 comes included on Windows RT devices. Mainstream support ends on April 10, 2018. Extended support ends on April 11, 2023.

    Development on this version of Microsoft Office was started in 2010 and ended on October 11, 2012, when Microsoft Office 2013 was released to manufacturing. Microsoft released Office 2013 to general availability on January 29, 2013. This version includes new features such as integration support for online services (including OneDrive, Outlook.com, Skype, Yammer and Flickr), improved format support for Office Open XML (OOXML), OpenDocument (ODF) and Portable Document Format (PDF) and support for multi-touch interfaces.

    Microsoft Office 2013 comes in twelve different editions, including three editions for retail outlets, two editions for volume licensing channel, five subscription-based editions available through Microsoft Office 365 program, the web application edition known as Office Web Apps and the Office RT edition made for tablets and mobile devices. Office Web Apps are available free of charge on the web although enterprises may obtain on-premises installations for a price. Microsoft Office applications may be obtained individually; this includes Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Project and Microsoft SharePoint Designer which are not included in any of the twelve editions.

    In the upcoming release of CodeWeavers CrossOver Linux 15 we will see many new and exciting changes over the current CrossOver 14 edition that's available now. Don't get me wrong CrossOver 14 is a nice release and runs many productivity applications and games that we care about today.

    CrossOver Linux 15 is a whole new ball game, it will come with Microsoft Office 2013 functionality, the beginnings of DirectX 10 and 11 support, a newly refreshed and modern Graphical User Interface (GUI) and incorporate just over a full years worth of Wine from WineHQ changes into the release. And most likely will ship with the upcoming Wine 1.8 stable release or a variant of that release.

    Not only will we get a newly updated Graphical User Interface (GUI) we will also get a totally new version of Wine with many DirectX 10 and 11 enhancements. So the day of playing DirectX 10 and 11 games on Linux is soon approaching. I can only imagine the effects on work productivity as we will be like children in a candy store once again.

    So on to the main article, this isn't a how-to or user guide but simply a news post. CrossOver 15 is still under extremely heavy development and testing. This news post is to inform everyone of a small sample of whats soon coming our way.

    Specs :

    Distro : Ubuntu Linux 14.04.3 LTS
    CrossOver Release : 15.0 pre release build
    Microsoft Office : Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013

    You can go to MSDN and download Microsoft Office Professional Plus and get a free 60 day trial here. After you have registered and got the download it's time to run the install with CrossOver Linux 15 on your Linux Computer. Keep in mind this will install and run on any of the popular modern Linux distributions, Ubuntu is in no way a requirement.

    Wine 1.8 code freeze and Pulse Audio Driver coming soon

    Alexandre Julliard WineHQ Wine maintainer sent a message to the wine-devel mailing list outlining the Wine 1.8 code code freeze schedule and possible release in time for Christmas 2015. Below is a copy of the email Alexandre sent, I would like to see the Pulse driver included in Wine 1.8 as well...

    Folks,

    We've decided at WineConf that there would be a code freeze and release every year in the fall. That means about right now...

    However, there are a few things I'd like to get in first (*cough* Pulse driver), so my thinking is to do one more development release cycle, and start code freeze after 1.7.55. This should enable us to release 1.8 before the end of the year.

    So if there are new features you'd like to get into 1.8, you have another two weeks...
