If you're a gamer, you'll want to know about CodeWeavers' latest update for its popular gaming software. CrossOver Games 7.2.0 is now available for both Linux and Mac OS X, and includes a bunch of fixes, formal support for Spore, and an updated version of Wine.

According the the change log, improvements include:

Fixed Guild Wars on ATI Macs with 10.5.5.

Added steam:// link support for OS X

Steam+compiz fixed

A few improvements for City of Heroes

Even if you're not a gamer, CrossOver Games is a handy application to have on your system. If you're showing someone around your desktop and they claim they can't switch to Linux because they won't be able to play their favorite video games, five minutes with this app will put that idea to rest.
