Apple Bootcamp 1.2 beta

Apple today released Boot Camp 1.2 beta, a new release of the company's software that enables Intel-based Macs to run both Windows XP as well as Windows Vista. Version 1.2 offers support for the 32-bit version of Windows Vista as well as updated drivers, including but not limited to trackpad, AppleTime, audio, graphics, modem, iSight camera. It also brings support for the Apple Remote (works with iTunes and Windows Media Player); a Windows system tray icon for easy access to Boot Camp information and actions; improved keyboard support for Korean, Chinese, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Russian, and French Canadian; improved Windows driver installation experience; updated documentation and Boot Camp on-line help in Windows; and Apple Software Update (for Windows XP and Vista).

Apple says that while it is not necessary to partition the drive again, "it's very important to update the Boot Camp Assistant software, create a new Mac Drivers CD and install the updated software it contains onto Windows."

Bootcamp requires Mac OS X 10.4.6, an Intel-based Mac, a blank recordable CD or DVD, a printer for the instructions, and a full version of Microsoft Windows: XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2, Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, or Ultimate (upgrade or multi-disc versions are not supported).

A final version of the technology is due with the "Spring" release of Apple's next-generation operating system, Mac OS X Leopard--which one analyst believes is nearing final candidate stages.
