CodeWeavers CrossOver 21 for Linux Mac and Chrome OS
I’m thrilled to announce that CodeWeavers has released CrossOver 21 for macOS, Linux and Chrome OS! CrossOver 21, and Skyrim Special Edition should be newly playable on M1 Macs with wined3d.
macOS users running Big Sur 11.3 or later will also find that Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 DualSense controllers now work with Bluetooth.
Also relevant to our macOS users is the addition of dark mode support to the CrossOver UI. We hope that dark mode fans whose eyes are currently shocked when they open CrossOver will be pleased with the changes.
We have several fixes for Office 2016/365 on Linux, including better support for multi-monitor configurations and a fix for problems entering a password to sign in to and activate Office.
Both our Chrome OS and Linux users should notice faster startup times when opening CrossOver 21.
In addition to many other fixes for various applications, we have updated the version of DXVK we ship to 1.7, and we also now ship Wine Mono with CrossOver.
Lastly, I want to touch on one thing that CrossOver 21 does NOT currently include: support for macOS Monterey. We have been working closely with Apple on a solution, but right now CrossOver will not run on Monterey. We expect to be able to offer support for Monterey on CrossOver later this year in time for Monterey’s release. We will be posting progress updates on our website, so make sure you are subscribed to our blog to get the latest updates on Monterey compatibility.
