Bootcamp 1.1.1 beta

Apple has released Bootcamp 1.1.1 beta, an update to its software that allows users of the Intel-based Macs to run Windows. Released earlier this year as a beta and expected as part of the Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard system release next year, the software allows Intel-based Macs to run Windows XP (although support for Vista is expected when it is released). Version 1.1.1 adds support for Apple's recently Core 2 Duo-based Macs, including the new 24-inch iMac. It also improves support for Apple keyboards and wireless connectivity on Mac minis, according to the company. The update is 186MB. Apple notes that "If you previously installed Boot Camp beta, you can easily update to Boot Camp 1.1.1 beta. You don't need to partition your hard drive again (unless you want to change its size) or reinstall your Macintosh and Windows software or documents, but it's very important to update the Boot Camp Assistant software, create a new Macintosh Drivers for Windows CD and install the updated software it contains on Windows XP."
