CrossOver 8.1) will provide a new feature being called Application Installer Profiles. With CrossOver's Application Installer Profiles, any individual or company independent of CodeWeavers can write support for CrossOver to use any application-specific optimizations (or "hacks") or any other workarounds that may be required for the application to run properly atop Wine/CrossOver.

Additionally, this next release of CrossOver features a complete rewrite of the client engine, which is reported to give a dramatic improvement in behavior for Linux users.

When it comes to CrossOver Games Zombie Mallard (we imagine it will be marketed as CrossOver Games 8.1) will feature support for new games, including the Left 4 Dead 2 game that is expected to be extremely popular.
