Quote: It looks like VMware has a Technology Preview for a new release of Fusion so I don't think they've given up yet. This is good news and they should release it soon. I'd keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.
It looks like you can get VMware Fusion 5 using the following discount code: "fus5beta20"
You save $10.
I upgraded to version 5 standard from version 4 for $39.99, a $10 savings.
Not sure how long this is going to last so if you wish to upgrade to version 5 and don't want to pay $49, this is the way to do it.
I believe this works for both the Pro version and the Standard version.
You can use a Boot Camp disk with VMware Fusion. Not sure why you would need two installations. You just run the Boot Camp disk from within Fusion. I think you do need two licenses, one for Boot Camp and one for VMware Fusion though.
