Feb 27, 2002, 00:00 ET from CodeWeavers, Inc.

    ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- CodeWeavers, Inc., a leading
 Windows-to-Linux software developer, today unveiled CrossOver Plugin(TM)
 Version 1.1, the newest version of the company's leading Windows(R)-To-
 Linux(R) adapter for Windows browser plugins and email viewers.  Among its
 many improvements, CrossOver Plugin 1.1 provides new support for multi-user
 environments, enabling quick and easy rollout to literally thousands of
 desktops without reconfiguration.
     CrossOver Plugin, introduced in August 2001, allows users to access
 popular Windows files and plug-ins in all of the most popular Linux web
 browsers and email clients.  Along with the ability to open MS Office
 documents (Word/Excel/PowerPoint) and eFax(R) files in any KDE or GNOME
 application, CrossOver Plugin 1.1 now supports Windows Media(TM) Player
 streams opened in a Linux web browser.
     This new Media Player functionality adds to CrossOver Plugin 1.1's support
 for Apple QuickTime(TM) and Macromedia(R) Shockwave(R) Director(R).  Also new
 to CrossOver Plugin 1.1 is acceptance for all TrueType fonts as well as:
 RealPlayer(R) files; the iPIX(R) plugin; Macromedia Authorware(R); Trillian, a
 convergent instant messaging plugin that supports AOL Instant Messenger, MSN
 Messenger, and Yahoo Messenger; and Chime, a scientific plugin used in the
 chemical industry as well as many colleges and universities.
     "CrossOver Plugin 1.1 is now the fastest, most convenient and cost-
 effective way for large enterprises to support the most popular Windows-based
 files across Linux desktops and workstations," said Jeremy White, founder and
 president of CodeWeavers.  "In minutes, CrossOver Plugin 1.1 can enable the
 workflow for literally thousands of employees with a single configuration.
 This new version of CrossOver Plugin will only enhance its wide acceptance in
 both academic and corporate environments."
     Using proprietary extensions developed by CodeWeavers, CrossOver Plugin
 interfaces between the Windows application and Wine, allowing the application
 to run correctly in Linux.  The software supports most Linux browsers
 including Netscape(R), Mozilla, Konqueror, Opera, SkipStone and Galeon.
     Since its unveiling last year, CrossOver Plugin has received unusually
 good feedback from customers around the world.  CrossOver Plugin 1.1 is
 immediately available for $24.95 via download from the CodeWeavers' Web site,
 www.codeweavers.com ; a CD version, priced at $34.95, is also available.
     CodeWeavers also offers SDKs for CrossOver Plugin 1.1 as well as licensing
 agreements that authorize use of the software in embedded applications.
