CodeWeavers released CrossOver 19.0.0 for Linux and MacOS

CodeWeavers just released CrossOver 19.0.0 for both macOS and Linux!

The capstone of CrossOver 19 is the new ability to run 32 bit Windows applications within a 64 bit process.  This enables us to support 32 bit Windows applications on the new macOS release, Catalina, which removed all support for 32 applications in October.

This has been a remarkably difficult challenge, and I appreciate everyone's patience with us as we strove to make this happen.  I particularly want to call out and celebrate the work of Ken Thomases, the senior developer  at CodeWeavers who has worked tirelessly on this for the past year and a half.

In addition to that change, CrossOver’s core technology Wine has been updated to bring much of the developments of the past year to all of our users on both Mac and Linux.  These changes include over 5,000 individual improvements, all of which will act together to improve the end user experience with CrossOver.

We have improved installation compatibility with recent Linux distributions and also taken the step of upgrading CrossOver to rely on Python 3...

Proton 4.11-3 has been released

 Proton 4.11-3 has been released

  • Games will now attempt to access gamepads directly, instead of Proton emulating gamepads as if they were Xbox controllers. This means PlayStation 4 gamepads as well as fighting gamepads and other controllers will behave much more like they do on Windows. If you would like your gamepad to be emulated as if it were an Xbox controller, please use the Steam client controller mapping feature. If the controller cannot be accessed directly, due to a permissions issue, it will continue to be presented like an Xbox controller.
  • fsync hang and crash fixes.
  • Add support for fsync configurable spin count, might help performance but disabled by default. Try setting WINEFSYNC_SPINCOUNT=100
  • Add missing Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language font.
  • Fix in-game web browser in some games including Bloons TD 6.
  • Fix new crashes related to text input, especially in Unreal Engine 4 games including Mordhau and Deep Rock Galactic.
  • Update D9VK to 0.20.
  • Improve support for very old VR titles.
  • Support for latest Steamworks and OpenVR SDK versions.
