Amid all the announcements at VMworld this past week, the release of Fusion 2.0 could easily be missed. Fusion 2.0 includes over 100 new features and enhancements over the previous release. Best of all, Fusion 1.1 users get a free upgrade to 2.0; just download 2.0 and use your existing license!
Personally, I use Fusion daily and have been using 2.0 in “production” since the first beta (it was stable enough for me to use it everyday on my MacBook Pro). Some of my favorite improvements include:
- Support for multiple snapshots and AutoProtect (which will take automatic snapshots for you)
- Virtual machine library which allows you to easily view and run multiple VMs you may have on your make (just like in Workstation)
- Ability to mirror folders between your Windows Guest and your Mac, always have key documents available regardless of which OS you are in
- Universal URL handling so that clicking a URL in the Guest or Host OS opens the URL in the browser of your choice, in either the Guest or Host.
You can see the full list of features on the Fusion 2.0 Release Notes.
