Apple has released a beta of Boot Camp 1.2 which lets Intel-based Macs run 32-bit versions of Windows Vista in a separate partition.

Boot Camp will be included in Mac OS X 10.5 'Leopard", and it had been feared that Apple would delay the operating system's launch while it implemented Vista support. The beta, available for free use and testing contains other updates, including new drivers, for the trackpad, AppleTime (sync), audio, graphics, modem and the iSight camera.

Boot Camp also now offers support for the Apple Remote, which now works both with iTunes and Windows Media Player. Documentation and online help have also been improved.
