Apple Boot Camp adds Windows 7 support

Update fixes bug and simplifies upgrades

Apple has finally updated Boot Camp to officially support Windows 7.

Originally expected late last year, Boot Camp 3.1 is recommended for all users of Boot Camp 3.0, and works with both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft's new OS.

The update adds support for the Apple wireless keyboard and the Apple Magic Mouse, and fixes Apple trackpad bugs.

Also new is a Boot Camp Utility upgrade that's designed to help Mac users planning to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7. According to Macworld US, it fixes an error that occurs because the Windows 7 installer foolishly tries to write to a read-only Mac OS X partition.

See Macworld US for more details.
