Although still in beta, Apple has released a significant upgrade to its dual-boot solution that allows Intel-based Macs the ability to boot and run the Microsoft Windows operating system.  According to Apple's Boot Camp page, version 1.1 beta includes the following features:
  • Support for the latest Intel-based Macintosh computers
  • Easier partitioning using presets for popular sizes
  • Ability to install Windows XP on any internal disk
  • iSight camera support
  • Support for built-in microphones
  • Right-click when pressing the right-hand Apple key on Apple keyboards
  • Improved Apple keyboard support including Delete, PrintScreen, NumLock, and ScrollLock keys

Apple is recommending all current Boot Camp users to upgrade to version 1.1 beta.  Be sure to follow the instructions in the Installation & Setup Guide. The 202MB download is available for free.  A non beta version of Boot Camp will ship as part of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard which is slated for release in Spring 2007.
