Apple Windows-on-Mac tool now works with Vista

So much for the Leopard delay claims

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Apple has updated its Boot Camp beta software to support Windows Vista. So much for claims that Mac OS X 10.5 would be delayed to ensure Vista compatibility.

The new release, version 1.2, not only adds support for the 32-bit version of Vista but also implements a number of interesting tweaks, including the ability to use the Apple Remote with Windows. It also adds a Windows system tray icon - the bit down at the bottom right of the screen - to provided quick access to Boot Camp features.

Apple's coders have also rolled a number of driver updates into the release, upgrading existing code for graphics, laptop trackpads, audio, modems, the iSight webcam and time synchronisation. There may be other driver tweaks, Apple hinted, but it hasn't provided details.

The 138MB download is available from Apple's website here.
