Wine 1.2 was released earlier this month with more than 23,000 changes since the release of Wine 1.0 some two years ago. This stable update to this major free software project is impressive and many more Windows applications now have life under Linux and other Unix-like operating systems. CodeWeavers, which is the primary corporate backer of the open-source Wine project, has now released CrossOver (Office) 9.1 and CrossOver Games 9.1 to their customers.

The 9.1 releases of CrossOver Games and CrossOver pull in the Wine 1.2.0 code while both programs also integrate some other changes too since the release of CrossOver 9.0 earlier this year. CrossOver 9.1 has various improvements for Microsoft Office 2003/2007, better Quicken 2010 support, improved proxy handling from the GNOME desktop, and updated localizations. On the CrossOver Games side there is support for StarCraft II, Star Trek Online, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Alien Swarm, and various other game fixes.

Customers of CodeWeavers can download the updated CrossOver / CrossOver Games 9.1 update from their account area. A trial of CrossOver can also be downloaded for free. The press release announcing today's 9.1 update can be found here.
