Great news! I received an e-mail that the beta 1 version of CX22 has been released. This means that after it gets released after some weeks testing a new engine will follow for Portingkit as well!! Better support for Apple Silicon and games!
CrossOver 22 includes an update to Wine 7.7, bringing with it over 10,000 changes that offer improvements to a variety of applications. This release also includes an update to Wine Mono 7.2.0 and vkd3d 1.4.
On the macOS side, we have been continuing to make gaming performance improvements. Between including the wined3d changes available with Wine 7.7, updating to MoltenVK version 1.1.10 and adding a few other tweaks, we’ve made quite a bit of progress. One particularly exciting example is Rocket League: the performance using wined3d is much better than CrossOver 21.2, and the nameplates are visible in-game (unlike using DXVK).
Our initial tests show that CrossOver 22 runs pretty well on the macOS Ventura beta. While we do not recommend that anyone start using the Ventura beta if they aren’t already, we welcome your beta reports about how 22 is running on Ventura. Note: while we will aggressively fix any issues with running CrossOver 22 on Ventura, we cannot offer official support for Ventura until it is released due to the possibility of changes during beta causing problems for CrossOver support.
So nice things ahead! Keep an eye on the blog for updates. It’s testing time now, so lets see what this update will all fix and what new games are now working which didn’t in the past :)
