  • Announcing CrossOver 18.1.0

    I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released CrossOver 18.1 for both macOS and Linux.

    CrossOver 18.1 supports Visio 2016 on Linux.

    For macOS users, CrossOver 18.1 contains a number of important bug fixes. We have resolved a bug which prevented game downloads and the Steam Store page from working on the latest Steam release. CrossOver 18.1 also addresses an issue some macOS users experienced running recent versions of Quicken on CrossOver 18. Those who experienced crashes or launch failures when using Quicken 2016-2018 should see full functionality on CrossOver 18.1.

  • CrossOver 18.1 Released With Visio 2016 On Linux, Restored Controller Support On Steam

    A new feature release of CodeWeavers' Wine-based CrossOver software for Linux and macOS is now available.

    The CrossOver 18.1 release for Linux users brings support for Microsoft Visio 2016, the diagramming and vector graphics software that is part of Microsoft Office. Visio 2019 is available as of two months back, but Visio 2016 is currently the latest release working properly under Linux thanks to CodeWeavers.

  • The Humble Team17 Bundle is up, another chance for some cheap Linux games

    Humble have teamed up with developer and publisher Team17 for another bundle full of goodies, there's some Linux games included too.

An Initial Look At The Intel Iris Gallium3D Driver Performance

One of the most exciting developments in the open-source Intel driver space this year was the Iris Gallium3D driver taking shape as what's destined to eventually succeed their "classic" i965 Mesa driver. With Iris Gallium3D maturing, here's a look at how the performance currently stacks up to their mature OpenGL driver. The Intel Iris Gallium3D driver is designed for Skylake (potentially Broadwell too) support and newer generations while being a forward-looking driver and utilizes their mature NIR compiler support. Iris holds much more performance potential than their classic Mesa driver albeit the developers haven't really taken to performance optimizations yet but rather getting the driver up and running, eliminating test suite failures, and getting to the point of feature parity with the i965 driver.
