On Friday, virtualization softare maker VMWare released version 4.1.2 of its Fusion software for the Mac.
Similar to other virtualization software packages, VMWare allows users to run alternate operating systems such as Windows and Linux distributions on Intel-based Macs at native speeds. Other features, such as Unity, allow users to run and minimize Windows applications from the Mac OS X Dock.
The new version, a 180 megabyte download, can be found here and offers the following fix:
- Resolved an issue that caused the following message when you resumed a suspended virtual machine: The Virtual Machine is unable to reserve memory.
- The McAfee Virus Scan software is updated.
- Resolved an intermittent problem that caused printing to fail on Mac OS X Lion.
- Resolved an issue that occurred when copying and pasting information from newer Linux distributions.
- Improved compatibility with certain versions of Mac OS X.
- Improved the behavior of the minibar when placed at the top of the display.
- Fixed mapping of comma on numeric keyboard mapping of a French keyboard.
- Resolved an intermittent problem when removing a CD device from a virtual machine.
Fusion 4.1.2 retails for US$49.99 and requires an Intel-based Mac, 2 GB of RAM, Mac OS X 10.6.7 or later (10.7 recommended) and a copy of Windows (if you’ll be installing Windows).
If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.
