updated 02:05 pm EDT, Thu April 24, 2008

VMware Fusion

VMWare Fusion 1.1.2 has been released, adding enhanced support for the MacBook Air. The new release also enables Time Machine backup of virtual machines, adds support for Windows XP SP3 Boot Camp partitions, and is now available in Simplified Chinese. In addition, VMWare can now properly disconnect USB devices connected to the virtual machine when shut down, making the USB devices available again to the Mac. It also addresses problem with wireless bridged networking in some cases not being able to obtain an IP address from the DHCP server.

Version 1.1.2 fixes a sound problem where only the default speaker worked in some cases. Also, Pressing the newly introduced keys on the new slim Apple Aluminum Keyboard caused VMware Fusion to crash in certain circumstances, this has now been fixed. VMware Fusion's keyboard shortcuts to remap common Windows commands to Mac keyboard equivalents could not be disabled previously in Full Screen or Single Window views. In some cases, VMware Fusion, after being upgraded to Version 1.1.1, would fail with a Signal 10 error when the user tried to use the keyboard. This problem has been fixed.

    Better than Parallels

    I'm using Fusion almost all the time now. Its more stable and uses less CPU even at idle. On Fusion CPU idles around 20-25%. Parallels at idling uses 40% CPU. Great Job VMWare/Fusion!!
