Seamless Windows on the World's Thinnest Notebook
VMware Fusion 1.1.2 addresses two MacBook Air-related problems. Previously, MacBook Air users would encounter a crash if a virtual CD/DVD drive was connected to the virtual machine but a CD/DVD drive was not connected to the MacBook Air. This update fixes this issue. Also, this latest VMware Fusion update adds the ability to burn CD/DVDs with the MacBook Airs USB Superdrive.
Take Your VM Back in Time
Prior versions of VMware Fusion automatically excluded virtual machines from Time Machine backups to avoid hitting a Mac OS X-related crash when backing up running virtual machines.
Apple has addressed this issue in Mac OS X 10.5.2 and VMware Fusion 1.1.2 enables Time Machine to back up virtual machines on Mac OS X 10.5.2 and later.
VMware Fusion 1.1.2 also introduces Simplified Chinese to the list of localized languages it ships with. VMware Fusion now ships concurrently in five languages: English, French, German, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.
New Service Pack for Boot Camp
With Windows XP Service Pack 3 arriving on April 29th, VMware Fusion now supports Windows XP Service Pack 3 Boot Camp partitions when they are run as virtual machines.
