Cedega 6.1 Coming, Soon To Be Beta

In April of last year we had provided the first preview of Cedega 6.0 as well as a performance look at this software that's based upon WINE and is designed to allow you to get your gaming fix from Windows games on Linux. Cedega 6.0 had introduced support for such games as Battlefield 2142 and Need For Speed: Carbon. Under the hood Cedega 6.0 had a few highlights when it came to a new memory allocator, ATI fglrx improvements, support for new FBO extensions, dynamic CPU speed support, and much more. However, now it looks like that as we approach the one year anniversary of Cedega 6.0, that Cedega 6.1 isn't too far out on the horizon.

Transgaming, the company behind Cedega, has posted on their website and newsletter that Cedega 6.1 is deep into development and that the quality assurance team has been busy. However, Transgaming is now enrolling new beta testers in what will be preparation for Cedega 6.1. Transgaming's beta testing process is closed and is quite limited, however, if you're interested be sure to check out their website. Mark Adams, Transgaming's Development Manager, has issued a development report today as well, but Cedega 6.1 isn't mentioned. Instead Mark had discussed the recent releases of Cedega 6.0.4 and 6.0.5. Details on Cedega 6.1 are scarce, but if they are preparing for a new round of beta testers, we are hopeful that it may be a H1'08 release.
