Fusion 1.1.1 fixes

VMware today unveiled Fusion 1.1.1, an update to its virtualization client, adding in numerous features and bug fixes. Fusion now remaps hotkeys between the Mac and the virtual machine, equating Command-C with Control-C in the VM, for example. This remapping works for the following keys: Z, C, V, X, P, A, and F. On European keyboards, the Enter key now properly gives the AltGr command, and will not be influenced by NumLock. Fusion 1.1.1 is available for download from VMware's website.

A solution created in v1.1 that fixed a File Vault-related freezing problem surfaced again in Leopard, but is now quashed in this latest release. Boot Camp functionality was also improved, allowing users to type in passwords without having to actively click the field to bring it to the front.

Fusion 1.1.1 also fixes an issue where an error would surface when users elected to enable promiscuous mode on an Ethernet adapter in Leopard. Wireless networking will no longer create random problems for host and guest connectivity.

In addition, VMware fixed many other issues with hardware components, such as microphones and mice, while also resolving several matters regarding corruption and software plugins.

    Good to see VMWare improving stability rather than adding bells and whilstles and reducing stability.

    It was that behaviour that caused me to defect from Parallels.

    ...if only they could improve promiscuous mode with the women I meet....

    Re: nice

    I also defected from Parallels to VMware, and haven't looked back.

    Despite what all the Parallels fan-boi's say, I found VMware to be smoother (faster), more straight-forward and easier-to-use, a cleaner interface, and more stable.

    The fact that I can bring home VM's from VMware Workstation on my Windows work computer is an added bonus.
