6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

CodeWeavers recently released versiosn 6.1 of CrossOver Mac, an emulation application which allows users to run some Windows programs without installing Windows. The update includes support for EVE Online, a fix for the Half-Life 2 intro, and a "major update of DirectX support."

Here's a partial list of the changes:

Mac OS X specific changes:
Added handling of mailto: links, both within and outside of CrossOver.
Added support for installing a set of Windows-specific truetype fonts.
Fixed a problem with Quartz-wm on new Tiger install disks. Previously this problem caused CrossOver to crash on some new Macs.

New application support:
EVE Online
Quicktime 7

Application fixes:
Lots of widespread graphics improvements. Game rendering and performance should be much improved.
Improved the Equation Editor installation process.
The Half-Life 2 Intro now plays properly
