VMware has updated its virtualization package VMware Fusion (both standard and Professional editions) to version 7.1.1 with the capability to edit Processors & Memory settings for a restricted virtual machine without entering the restrictions password. Version 7.1.1 also fixes crashes when running the Bloomberg financial application and when running Outlook 2010 in Unity mode, fixes failures with the Command-G keyboard shortcut, and resolves issues with full screen mode on systems with some three-monitor configurations. There are several known issues to be aware of in version 7.1.1, including a failure for a Mac to wake up and repeated messages that some Windows applications were being opened for the first time when running VMware Fusion on OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite or later. Be sure to check the release notes for these known issues and recommended workarounds. ($69.99/149.99 new, $49.99/$79.99 upgrade, 333 MB)
