Three noteworthy Mac updates and only one of them is available exclusively through the Mac App Store, which speaks volumes about how successful Apple’s desktop software place isn’t. But, why digress? Step inside for CrossOver, Things and NeoOffice dot-fix info.

CrossOver 12.1 (change log):
• We have fixed a bug where certain users who chose “Register for all users of this computer” during CrossOver’s registration would receive an error claiming their bottle had “expired” and could not be used, despite the user having a valid CrossOver license.
• We have added a preference setting allowing the user to control what CrossOver does with an unknown Windows .exe file when it is launched. Using this preference, the user can tell CrossOver either to treat the unknown .exe file as an application installer, or to simply run it.
• CrossOver will now auto-update CrossTie files if the user has permitted auto-updates of CrossOver itself via Sparkle.
• Fixed a bug where automatic updates via Sparkle would fail for some users on OS X 10.6.8.
• Fixed a bug which caused several games to fail when running in fullscreen mode. Games which should be improved include StarCraft, Fallout, and, we hope, many others.
• Fixed a bug which prevented some users from logging into World of Tanks servers

Things 2.1.1 (Mac App Store):
• Reminders Parity with iOS: Added an arrow to items to indicate that they are location-based to-dos
• Reminders Parity with iOS: Added an import-all button in the top right corner of the white box
• Improved stability and bug fixes

NeoOffice 3.3 Patch 4 (release notes):
• Services support, floating tool windows, trackpad gestures, and Mac OS X grammar checking support
• Adds visibility for toolbars in Full-Screen mode
• Adds support for autocompletion searches up to 16,384 rows in Calc spreadsheets
• And, bug fixes
