Late Tuesday, virtualization softare maker VMWare released version 6.0.1 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 244.6 megabyte download, can be found here and offers the following fixes and changes:
Addressed an issue that caused VMware Fusion 6 to crash when opening
- Improved support for Boot Camp on 2013 Macs.
- Improved detection of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 media.
- Resolved an incompatibility with certain USB audio devices.
- Resolved an issue where Cubase could cause virtual machines to not power on.
- Addressed a graphics issue when switching between spaces in single window mode.
Fusion 6.0.1 retails for US$59.99 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.
