VMware Fusion 1.1.1 Launches; Adds One Cool Feature, Addresses 15 Issues


The VMware Fusion Team is happy to announce that VMware
Fusion 1.1.1
is now available, addressing 15 issues reported by our customers.

 VMware Fusion 1.1.1, a free update for current VMware Fusion
customers and available in all the languages Fusion currently ships in, also adds a nifty new feature to transparently remap keyboard shortcuts
when going back and forth between applications in the virtual machine and the
Mac, regardless of what view the virtual machine is in.

 For example, VMware Fusion now remaps Command –X from the
keyboard to Ctrl-X in the virtual machine whether in Full Screen, Single Window
or Unity. The same remapping happens for Command-Z/-C/-V/-P/-A/-F.  Previously, VMware Fusion only did this
remapping in Unity mode.

What this means to users, is that when copying something
from the Mac side to paste into the virtual machine, and vice versa, you no
longer have to remember “Is it Ctrl-V, or Command-V to paste here? Which
machine am I interacting with?”

effect is a more integrated blending of the two operating systems, so your Mac
and Windows work together seamlessly, where the user only has to remember one set of keyboard shortcuts! 

Keyboard remapping can be turned on and off in the VMware
Fusion > Preferences dialog.

  1. where keyboard remapping can be disabled? There is nothing like “Keyboard remapping” off/on button on app prefs dialog.

  2. Is there any particular reason why “CTRL-S” is not remapped?
    This is a common shortcut for saving, and it would be very convenient if this were remapped as well.

  3. Hi Michael,
    There are lots of keyboard shortcuts that people find indispensable, and based on feeback like yours, and what our users talk about in our forums (www.vmware.com/go/fusionforums) , we’ll be looking to make that experience better and better as we continue our work.
    Thanks for the feedback!
