Fusion 2.0.3 updates for new Macs, Snow Leopard

updated 10:20 am EDT, Fri April 3, 2009

VMware Fusion 2.0.3 update

VMware has released a new patch for Fusion, its Mac-based virtualization software. Although only described as a maintenance release, the download solves several major issues, for instance by restoring printer sharing. Mac printers should once again be accessible within Windows virtual machines; the compatibility was temporarily broken as a result of Apple Security Update 2009-001.

Fusion should now also be compatible with the default NVIDIA graphics hardware in the latest iMacs, Mac minis and Mac Pros. Support for dedicated ATI cards is said to be broken however, forcing users to turn off 3D acceleration in order to run Fusion properly. Developers should meanwhile be able to run the 32-bit kernel of Snow Leopard in a virtual machine, enabling program and driver testing without the risk of sabotaging an entire Mac.
