The VMware Fusion team has released VMware Fusion 2.0 Beta 2. This latest public beta, a free download, builds on VMware Fusion 2.0 Beta 1, adding the Unity 2.0 suite of Mac-Windows integration features, new ways to protect and manage your virtual machines with multiple snapshots, and a garage full of power tools for technical professionals.
And as previously announced, VMware Fusion 2.0 will be a free downloadable upgrade for all VMware Fusion 1.x customers.
As with Beta 1, VMware Fusion 2.0 Beta 2 brings dozens of new features and improvements to the most seamless way to run Windows on your Mac.
Unity 2.0 offers next-generation Mac-Windows integration: Share applications between Windows and Mac. Launch Mac files with Windows applications, and even set web, email, and other links to launch in either your Mac or Windows browser and email clients.
DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 2 3D acceleration gets more refined in Beta 2, meaning bigger and badder Windows games will run on a Mac, with no rebooting.
And High Definition video now runs at near native speed, and with less CPU impact on the Mac, opening up the world of Windows-only HD media.
Use VMware Fusion’s Mirrored Folders to seamlessly map the contents of your Mac’s Desktop, Documents, Music, and Pictures folders to show up in your Windows Desktop, My Documents, My Music, and My Pictures folders.
Even map your Mac keyboard to send custom keystroke combinations into your virtual machine.
