Direct X 10 Support Coming For CrossOver
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment
A recent blog post on the CodeWeaver's site reveals plans for the future of its CrossOver virtualization products. Among the upcoming additions is support for Direct X 10 and interface streamlining. CrossOver, and the games specific CrossOver Games, allows users to run Windows applications without having to install the operating system itself.
We've just shipped a lot of those 'under the hood' improvements for games out in CrossOver Games 7.2. We're really pushing Direct X 9 support pretty far along, and getting ready to move on Direct X 10.Visit the site below to read more.
CodeWeavers Blog: The Outlook For 2009
In the next few months, we'll be shipping CrossOver Linux 8.0, and CrossOver Mac 8.0. That revision of our flagship product will bring support for IE7, modern QuickBooks versions, Quicken 2009 (at a nice speed), Photoshop CS3, and many many other improvements, particularly around Microsoft Office and specifically Outlook.
After we ship version 8, and make sure we keep Games fresh as well, we're going to turn our focus to our next major revision. In addition to our normal work of broadening and deepening our application support in Wine, we're going to try to dramatically improve the CrossOver GUI itself. First, the Linux version will get a fresh new look. But both versions are going to get an interface that we hope will bring the power of the Compatibility Center right into the installation view. The key idea is to make it easier to distill the gathered wisdom on unsupported applications and make it far easier to use. I hope we'll have that available before the end of the year.
