Following last month's release of Wine 8.0 stable with much of Wine's upstream development being carried out by CodeWeavers employees, CodeWeavers has now released CrossOver 22.1 as their commercial product for enjoying Windows games and applications on both Linux and macOS.

CrossOver 22.1 is particularly important for macOS gamers where they don't currently have Steam Play for as easily enjoying Windows games on macOS. With CrossOver 22.1 they now have support for running 32-bit DirectX 10/11 games on macOS and in turn getting games like Command and Conquer: Remastered Collection, Total War ROME II - Emperor Edition, BioShock Infinite, GTA Online, and other games working correctly.

CrossOver 22.1 also improves gaming at large with an updated to the SDL version for improved controller handling, Xbox Elite Series 2 controller support, upgrading to VKD3D 1.5, and pulling in more than 400 updates to WineD3D from upstream Wine.
