Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

VMware Announces Fusion 1.0 Release

Send Article to a Friend

VMware has announced that after seven months of beta testing, Fusion version 1.0 will ship today, 06-Aug-07. Fusion is VMware's virtualization software that enables Intel-based Macs to run Windows alongside Mac OS X; it competes closely with Parallels Desktop for Mac.

Among Fusion's notable features are Unity, a mode in which windows from Windows applications intermingle with windows from Mac applications - including full support for Exposé and minimizing windows to the Dock; support for 64-bit guest operating systems (if your Mac has a 64-bit processor); multiple virtual processors for Windows applications that require them; and the capability to run virtual appliances (packages that contain one or more pre-configured applications, along with an operating system) from VMware's Virtual Appliance Marketplace.

Some of the known issues in Release Candidate 1 of Fusion still exist. For example, when using Fusion to run a copy of Windows Vista installed under Boot Camp, you must reactivate Windows each time you switch between Boot Camp and Fusion. VMware plans to address this and other problems in future releases. Fusion retails for $79.99 and a free 30-day evaluation version is available.
