"Early in the year, we plan to bring out 'Snow
Mallard', our new platform for CrossOver 9. This is going to be an
exciting release for us for a variety of reasons.
"Our Linux users will be excited to see the first ever revamp of
the GUI; folks that are weary of the TK look should enjoy the fresh
new GTK interface. We also think the user interface as a whole is
going to be substantially better, both for Mac and Linux users. It
should feel faster and cleaner.
"Next, we're going to make a major shift in the way we approach
applications. CrossOver 9 is going to include the concept of
'Application Profiles'; a way to describe a given Windows
application and all of its dependencies and quirks. This is going
to allow us to expand the user interface to take advantage of all
of the great work that has been done in the community areas of our
compatibility center. This way, if one person discovers how best to
run an application with CrossOver, they can easily share that
information with all other users."
