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.
