CodeWeavers has Released CrossOver 17.5.1 for Linux and MacOS

I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released CrossOver 17.5.1 for both macOS and Linux. CrossOver 17.5.1 has many improvements to the core Windows compatibility layer and also specific enhancements for several popular applications.

CrossOver 17.5.1 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 17.5.1 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 17.5.1 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.

macOS customers with active support entitlements will be upgraded to CrossOver 17.5.1 the next time they launch CrossOver. Linux users can download the latest version from  CodeWeavers.

Change Log For CrossOver Mac and Linux :

17.5.1 CrossOver - July 25, 2018
  • Application Support:
    • Fixed a bug that prevented installing and launching games in newly downloaded Steam bottles. Users can now install the latest Steam app and use without modification.
  • macOS:
    • CrossOver 17.5.1 includes preliminary support for the beta version of macOS Mojave 10.14.
