Minor fixes for Japan, South Korea
Apple has posted a new version of Boot Camp, its software allowing Windows partitions to run on a Mac. The v3.2 update -- measuring just 638KB -- is a minor one, only resolving problems with Japanese and South Korean keyboards when operating on a 2011 iMac. The update is nevertheless available in over a dozen languages, and requires Windows 7.
The 2011 iMacs represent a significant boost over their predecessors. All models are now quad-core, scaling up to a 3.4GHz Core i7. Apple is also claiming increased graphics performance up to three times faster, and better webcam technology in the form of FaceTime HD. On the back are two Thunderbolt ports, capable of transfer speeds up to 10Gbps.
