VMware Fusion 11

Making its annual appearance coinciding with a new macOS release, VMware has issued version 11 of its VMware Fusion virtualization package in both standard and Pro editions. Built for macOS 10.14 Mojave, VMware Fusion defaults to Apple’s new Enhanced Metal Graphics Rendering Engine on supported hosts and provides DirectX 10.1 compatibility. The release also updates the Application Menu, enabling you to change view modes, settings, snapshots, or launch Windows applications with a single click.

VMware Fusion 11 extends the REST API to support more networking operations, adds support for customizing the Touch Bar, and adds Finder integration at the top of the VM Window for faster navigation of a virtual machine’s folder tree. It supports all Macs launched in 2011 or later (except for the 2012 Mac Pro with the Intel Xeon W3565 processor), as well as the 2010 Mac Pro. New host and guest OS support includes Mojave, the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Windows Server 2016 updates, and Ubuntu 18.04.1.

VMware Fusion 11 costs $79.99 for the standard edition and $159.99 for Fusion Pro. Those with Fusion 8, 8.5, and 10 licenses can upgrade for $49.99 (standard) or $119.99 (Pro). Purchases of version 10 made on or after 21 August 2018 are eligible for a free upgrade. You can download a free trial from this VMware store page. ($79.99/$159.99 new, $49/$119 upgrades, 495 MB, release notes, 10.13+)
