VMware Releases Fusion 5
Thursday, August 23, 2012 - 10:03 AM EST
Posted by: Staff

VMware today announced the release of VMware Fusion 5, a major update of their virtualization software for Mac users. According to the company, this version of the software includes over 70 new features that take advantage of new technologies offered in Mountain Lion, Windows 8 and the latest MacBooks. Some of the highlights include:

  Run Windows on Mountain Lion and search Windows programs in Launchpad, use "AirPlay Mirroring" to stream Mac and Windows applications on an HDTV and get VMware Fusion notifications in Mountain Lion's notification center.

  VMware Fusion 5 supports Windows 8 standard, pro and enterprise editions so consumers can optimize the new Windows 8 "Metro" environment directly on a Mac.

  Support for the latest Mac technologies include compatibility with Mountain Lion, retina display optimization, USB 3 connectivity, and improved support for large memory Macs.

  Performance enhancements include up to 40% faster general performance speeds compared to the previous version of the product, improved power management for longer battery life and faster 3D graphics.

  New, powerful ways to experience Windows on a Mac are available through an updated virtual machine library that enables seamless transitions between multiple operating systems, one click snapshots with improved graphical appearance, a brand new graphics driver for Linux 3D desktops, and a new embedded learning center for immediate support.

VMware Fusion 5 is priced at $49.99. Customers who purchased VMware Fusion 4 on or after July 25, 2012 are eligible for a free upgrade.
