Apple has released Boot Camp beta version 1.3, the latest iteration of its solution for running Windows on an Intel Mac.

The updated version of the software ushers in support for keyboard backlighting on MacBook Pros along with Apple Remote pairing.

The software offers updated graphic drivers, improvements to the Boot Camp driver installer and international keyboard support, localisation fixes and updated Windows Help for Boot Camp.

Users who have previously installed Boot Camp can easily update to Boot Camp 1.3 with no need to partition the hard drive again or reinstall your Macintosh and Windows software or documents.

But in order to upgrade, users must update the Boot Camp Assistant software, create a new Mac Drivers CD and install the updated software it contains onto Windows. Complete instructions are provided in the Installation and Setup Guide included with the Boot Camp 1.3 beta software.
