VMware Fusion 2.0.1 Update Available

images Happy Friday everyone!

This is a quick note to let you know that VMware Fusion 2.01 is now available, a free maintenance update to VMware Fusion 2. 

You can download the new bits here.

VMware Fusion 2.0.1 features enhancements and fixes in follow up to the release of VMware Fusion 2 and the Apple notebook refresh.

You can read all about it in the release notes, but some quick things of interest:

  • One of my favorites: AutoProtect postpones taking a snapshot when the user is interacting with the virtual machine. Watch a video demo of AutoProtect, here.
  • Now shows application badge instead of generic document icons when assigning Windows applications to Mac documents.
  • Greatly reduced initial pause when opening mirrored or shared folders.
  • No longer disables certain shared folders and mirrored folders that were nested folders. The potential data loss issue with nested shared folders has been resolved.
  • No longer publishes Windows guest applications to Mac if “Allow the virtual machine to open applications on your Mac” is unchecked in virtual machine Settings > Sharing.
  • Brings back the Enable Hints menu item in Help menu.

There are more enhancements and bug fixes 100% broken out the release notes, here.

In the meantime, go get the bits!

    I’ve noticed with this build Windows XP will bluescreen with USB errors if I use an external USB audio headset. This did not happen in previous versions

    All attempts to download fail under FireFox 3. The download gets to the end, but fails to complete. I believe this has something to do with how you attempt to automount the disk image. The download does complete and open under Safari. Java and JavaScript are both enabled in FireFox.
