VMware has announced the release of the Fusion 1.1 Beta. VMware Fusion is a desktop application that lets you create and run virtual machines on your Intel-based Mac. According to the company, "If you have already purchased VMware Fusion 1.0, your existing serial number will work with VMware Fusion 1.1. It will automatically be displayed in the VMware Fusion 1.1 Beta installer. If you have not purchased VMware Fusion 1.0, you can use the temporary serial number on the download page."
