Apple marches out Boot Camp update

Core 2 Duo-based Mac support

Apple has updated its Windows-on-Mac utility, Boot Camp. The latest release, version 1.1.1 and still a beta test incarnation, primarily incorporates support for the Apple's recently released Core 2 Duo-based iMacs.

The 186MB download is little changed from version 1.1, released last month after Apple shipped its Mac Pro desktop. Many of the features the company lists for the 1.1.1 update were introduced in the previous release. Bug fixes and enhancements not mentioned when Boot Camp 1.1 shipped, but listed now include improved Apple keyboard support including Delete, PrintScreen, NumLock, and ScrollLock keys; improved 802.11 wireless for the Mac Mini; and support for 802.11 wireless connectivity in Japan and Korea.

You can download Boot Camp 1.1.1 from Apple's website. ®
