Cedega 6.0 Released! Now You Can Play Too!

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

After many months of intense development, we couldn't be more thrilled to unveil our latest and most exciting Cedega version yet: Cedega 6.0. With sweeter graphics, increased performance, vastly improved usability, and more games supported than ever before, there's never been a better time to be a Linux gamer!
Another excellent release by Cedega, further improving gaming on Linux. New features Cedega has to offer are:
  • GLSL
  • Shader Model 2.0
  • Point size, scaling, sprites
  • Volume textures
  • Floating point textures
  • FBO Re-write
  • Support for new FBO extensions
  • New memory allocator
  • Optimized file operations
  • Anti-Aliasing
  • Improved ALSA
  • Dmix and MMap
  • Improved multimedia timer thread
  • Dynamic CPU speed support
  • Improved joystick functionality
  • D-Bus improvements
  • Steam improvements
  • Improvements for ATI users
  • Copy Protection improvements (SafeDisc 4.x)
  • Cedega UI Improvements
  • Ubuntu Edgy fixes
  • GDDB multiple volume support
  • Updated GDDB files
  • Improved mount handling
  • Improved richedit support
  • Networking improvements
Quite a list, with some very welcome improvements. Read more about the latest Cedega release at their website: transgaming.com. Also, be sure to check out Techage's review on the new version. For yet another view on the matter, navigate to Phoronix and read their review.

Note from the Nerd: Sadly, Cedega is still a subscription service, and costs about $5 a month, or $55 a year. A free version, or a least a demo, would be excellent... My bad, there is a timedemo that you can download! Head on over to Softpedia for the download.
