VMware Fusion 2.0 Beta 1

Scott McNulty

VMware has just announced VMware Fusion 2.0 Beta 1, the first beta of the second iteration of their very successful virtualization product for the Mac. As you'll recall Fusion allows you to run a host of OSes on your Intel Mac including, but not limited to, many flavors of Windows.

The above video gives you a tour of Fusion 2.0 Beta 1's top new features, including:

  • Multiple monitor support (up to 10 displays!)
  • Improved networking and printing
  • Support for DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 2 (this is experimental, and it might not work on your Mac)
  • A refined UI for settings and VM management
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. The beta is available now, and best of all the upgrade to version 2.0, when it comes out of beta, will be free to all Fusion users. You can register for the beta program and download the hefty 300 MB installer here.
