CrossOver 7.0 ships

CodeWeavers has released v7.0 of CrossOver Mac, its utility which lets users install Windows software on Macs without creating a Boot Camp partition. Once installed, these programs can then be launched from inside of Mac OS X without a Windows license. New to v7.0 is support for a number of extra applications, specifically Microsoft's Office 2007 suite, and Adobe's first two Creative Suites. Also supported are "newer versions" of Quicken applications.

Incorporated into CrossOver are several elements of today's Wine 1.0 release, specifically a "significantly enhanced" support for ActiveX controls within Internet Explorer. This should let users visit a number of sites previously inaccessible on Macs.

CodeWeavers has further divided CrossOver into Standard ($40) and Pro ($70) editions. Pro extends the official support period, accepts multiple users, and includes a copy of CrossOver Games, which enables compatibility with titles such as Team Fortress 2 and World of WarCraft. CrossOver Mac requires an Intel-based system with 120MB of free space.
