Continuing The Journey
Fusion 11.5 continues the journey we began over 11 years ago. This year we’ve added support for the latest Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems, a whole new look and feel with Dark Mode, improved performance and reliability, added new networking functions, patched critical security issues, and added more compatibility with vSphere.

Dark Mode Support
Fusion has a whole new look when using macOS in Dark Mode. Every bit of the Fusion interface has been updated to support this striking new UI capability.

Virtual Networking: Jumbo Frames
Fusion Pro gives users more control than ever over virtual networks with the ability to specify an MTU size up to 9000 per virtual network, opening the door to more powerful and ‘lifelike’ nested lab environments that can run data center networking software as complex as vSphere and NSX in virtual machines on the Mac.

Ready for macOS Catalina and the latest Windows 10
Fusion 11.5 is ready to run the latest 2019 versions of Windows 10, Linux and macOS as virtual machines on macOS 10.15 Catalina Macs.
