VMware Fusion 3.1.2

Send Article to a Friend

When you must run Windows or another Intel-based operating system, it’s nice that VMware Fusion at least lets you do so without leaving the comfy confines of your Mac. Now, the virtualization software has been updated to version 3.1.2, which resolves many bugs and security-related issues. Fixed problems include one where you’d encounter errors when attempting to resume virtual machines with DivX Player installed, video display issues with Slingbox Slingplayer, and windowing issues with Microsoft Office applications. Many other bugs—problems with volume, connected handheld devices, full screen mode, the Samsung Galaxy S, Outlook 2007, and Mac OS X Server—are also addressed; the complete list is available at VMware’s Web site. Beyond all those fixes, version 3.1.2 includes patches for a small handful of security vulnerabilities that could allow local users to access files that they shouldn’t be permitted to see. ($49.99 new after $30 rebate from VMware, free update)
