CodeWeavers, through Jeremy White, announced today the release of a new version of its CrossOver application for both Linux and Mac operating systems. CrossOver 8.0 brings support for Internet Explorer 7, Quicken 2009 and a lot of fixes for supported applications.
Version 8 also represents another year of dramatic growth in CrossOver and Wine. You should see improvements across the board in all applications, not just the ones we officially support. Of course, we hope you'll like the many improvements we've made to Microsoft Office and Outlook as well.,
Jeremy White said in the press release. Highlights of CrossOver 8.0:
· Added a "symbol" font to improve the behavior of Equation Editor;
· Resizing windows on dual-head Linux machines now works properly;

Moreover, there is a plethora of fixes that apply to MS Office 2003/2007, QuickTime 7, Outlook 2000, Acrobat Reader and FrameMaker. Thus, users can now benefit from both service packs that were released for Office 2007 and also install the Enterprise, Pro and Corporate editions. The "Insert Image" function now works properly and other patches/add-ons are expected to perform better. For Office 2003, the developers fixed table calculations and "Insert Field" in Word, the NTLM proxy authentication in Outlook and "Insert Picture" in both Word and Excel. Other fixes include:
