You’ll find a new update for VMware Workstation the next time you power it on. Version 7.1.2 includes a set of fixes for various operating systems, as well as some performance improvements for NAT networking. I’ve been experiencing problems myself with NATted virtual machines since the 7.1.1 update. I look forward to seeing if this fixes those problems.
Here’s what VMware’s website advertises as the highlights:
- Added Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 support for Integrated Virtual Debugger’s live debugging mode.
- Addressed issues with running Windows 7 SP1 Beta, RHEL 6.0 Beta and Fedora 13 in a virtual machine. Each of these Operating Systems versions are still in development or have known issues, therefore they are not fully supported by VMware.
- Made several performance improvements to NAT networking.
- VMware Workstation 7.1.2 has been tested with the new standalone VMware Converter 4.3. VMware Converter 4.3 now handles Windows 7! Download VMware Converter for free.
- Easy Install now supports older versions of CentOS.
- Added Windows 2008R2 and Apache Server 2.2.15 support for ACE Management Server.
- Read the VMware Workstation 7.1.2 release notes for more details.
