VMware has updated its VMware Fusion virtualization package to version 13.5, adding support for downloading and installing Windows 11 as a guest operating system from the Fusion user interface on M-series Macs. The release also introduces an enhanced security encryption scheme (XTS instead of CBC) for improved protection and reduced performance, enables you to import or export a virtual machine with a virtual Trusted Platform Module (vTPM) device enabled using the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) Tool, and adds support for managing power operations of encrypted virtual machines using the VMREST API.
