CrossOver 24 features the latest and greatest Wine 9.0, released just a month back.

Naturally, all the improvements that you get with Wine 9.0 will be reflected through CrossOver 24. So, if you had an application facing issues, you could get a flawless experience this time (it depends, but possibly!).

In addition to the core update, there have been much-needed tweaks to the UI:

  • Drag and drop executables into CrossOver to run/install them
  • Drag and drop executable within CrossOver to the target bottle, and run it in a single click
  • Create a launcher icon for applications on Linux for quick access

Furthermore, you now get the ability to change the default directory for the bottle:

You can find the option through CrossOver preferences. This gives you flexibility to store big games/apps on an external drive.
