Well if you are like me and just got your wife a new Retina Macbook….you are one happy camper! Log into the VMware site today and you will see that VMware Fusion 5 is now available! This release of VMware Fusion has a whole host of new features
- OS X Mountain Lion with notification center,
- AirPlay mirroring and Launchpad search support
- Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 Enterprise
- Ivy Bridge processors, Retina Display and USB 3.0 support
- Up to 40% faster resuming
- Up to 40% faster Windows rebooting
- Up to 45% more battery life when running Windows
- Near-native performance and ultrafast 3D graphics
I just loaded it onto both my MacBook machines here in the house and so far things are running pretty good. I also made sure to update the Virtual Hardware to take advantage of all the tings the new Vmware Fusion has to offer. Along with the features there is a re-tooled UI that is more like the Workstation left column view that I personally like. Have fun playing with the new version if you are able to grab it today especially on your new Retina Mac….which I don’t personally have though.
So go get your copy of VMware Fusion 5 upgraded so you can take advantage of that shiny new Retina Display with your VMware FUsion Virtual Machines!
