Saturday 19 May 2012 at 23:09

To finish the week, we're happy to announce you PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac 4.1 release.

Here is a short summary of the changes

PlayOnLinux can open documents, and manage extensions

Many of you asked this feature, now it's done! PlayOnLinux can open your documents, for example you can associate .doc files with Office 2010

How does it work?
  1. Tells PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac that you want to open .docx files (for example) with Microsoft Word 2010 (These settings can be found in option menu). This step can be automatically done when you install programs with PlayOnLinux.
  2. Open your .docx file with PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac
  3. Voilà
