The Wine team is proud to announce that release 1.0 of vkd3d, the Direct3D 12 to Vulkan translation library, is now available.

CodeWeavers has Released CrossOver 17.5.0 for Linux and MacOS

I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released CrossOver 17.5.0 for both macOS and Linux. CrossOver 17.5.0 has many improvements to the core Windows compatibility layer and also specific enhancements for several popular applications.


CrossOver 17.5 supports the latest version of Microsoft Office 365 and includes a number of bug fixes to improve Office 2016. Users should see increased stability and encounter fewer crashes.

CrossOver 17.5 is the first step towards making CrossOver for macOS fully 64-bit compatible, in anticipation of Apple’s plan to end support for 32-bit applications. As part of our transition to 64-bit, we have removed the Legacy X Window System from CrossOver 17.5. The Legacy X Window System had been a fallback display technology since CrossOver 13, used in a limited set of circumstances. Users who require Legacy X Window System support should continue using an earlier version of CrossOver and contact our support team at info@codeweavers.com.

macOS customers with active support entitlements will be upgraded to CrossOver 17.5 the next time they launch CrossOver. Linux users can download the latest version from  CodeWeavers.

Change Log For CrossOver Mac and Linux :

17.5.0 CrossOver - May 8, 2018
  • Application Support:
    • This update includes a variety of bug fixes to improve the behavior of Microsoft Office 2016. Users should see increased stability and encounter fewer crashes.
  • macOS:
    • As the first step towards making CrossOver fully 64-bit compatible, we have removed the Legacy X Window System. The Legacy X Window System has been a fallback display technology since CrossOver 13, used in a limited set of circumstances.

Wine Reviews released Putty for Mac 9.0.0 for MacOS today. Putty 9.0.0 is yet another major release,  we now have full support for macOS High Sierra. Please see the full change-log below for all the exciting changes in this release.

Putty is one of the Best Terminal Emulators available today. It Supports different types of Network Protocols such as SSH, FTP, SCP, Telnet etc. In Windows it is used as SSH Client to connect to Your Linux server or for some other purpose But what will you do if you are on Mac? You might be thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software’s we can Use putty on MacOS although Putty is used widely on Windows Platform. Official Versions of Putty are available on Unix like Platforms, and now it’s widely available for Mac systems running OSX 10.9.5 or higher.

SSH is available by default in Mac and Linux or Unix. Although you can use terminal for SSH connections still there are some benefits in using Putty such as Other clients don’t keep connections alive whereas Putty does. Also it is cool to use Putty as your SSH client if you are doing some Amazon AWS, VMware ESXi or CISCO Stuffs, transferring files, managing files on a server or whatever.

The cost of Putty 9.0.0 is only $15.00. Anyone who purchased Putty in the past three months is entitled to a free upgrade. Putty comes with three months of free upgrades and of course a 14-day money back guarantee.

Supported Protocols:
  • Telnet
  • FTP
  • SFTP
  • SSH
  • SCP
About Wine Reviews:

There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. Our goal is to have native ports of essential Windows tools and applications made available for MacOS users.

Version 9.0.0 New Features:
  • Font rendering and kerning has been improved
  • Compiled PuTTY on macOS 10.13.4 High Sierra
  • Improved Menu support, Edit Menu now works
  • Updated the Documentation
  • Minor bug fixes
We now use FastSpring as our preferred storefront, you can pay with Credit / Debit Cards, PayPal, Amazon payments, Wire Transfer etc. etc. This store is very secure, simple and fast.

Purchase Putty 9.0.0 now and have Telnet SSH FTP SCP on your Mac made easy!
