Release Notes: This release fixes the QuickTime 6 installation issues. CrossOver Plugin now ships with a known good FreeType library. It has been updated to work with both FreeType 2.0.x and 2.1.x libraries. The stale socket issues should be gone, greatly reducing the need for running cleanup_crossover.sh. Improved multi-user support, notably for Windows Media Player, has been added. PluginSetup will now detect if a browser is running during the installation of a plugin and issue a warning. Upgrades and uninstallations should be much cleaner. Many other fixes have been made.
Release Notes: The main sound issues have been fixed (again). The scripts (quicktimeplayer.sh, etc.) should work again in multi-user configurations. cleanup_crossover.sh now works for multi-user configurations. In multi-user setups, non-root users should pick up newly installed applications automatically now. GNOME associations are now completely removed when uninstalling. The umask is set when running applications or plugins as root so that all users will have access to the new codecs and plugin dlls. This version better handles 'broken' associations like those used by Windows Media Player (using %L instead of %1).
Release Notes: This release adds support for MacroMedia Flash6 and Superscape Viscape. The main sound issues have been fixed. MIME type association support has been improved. Many bugs were fixed, including an incorrect test for $display, and an incompatiblity with Debian for Mailcap files.
