VMWare Workstation Update

Minor update has been released by VMWare to their workstation product. This time, VMWare Workstation 7.1.2 brings several enhancement to the products:
  • Added Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 support for Integrated Virtual Debugger´s live debugging mode.
  • Addressed issues that occur when running Windows 7 SP1 Beta, RHEL 6.0 Beta, and Fedora 13 in a virtual machine. Each of these operating system versions are in the development phase. They have known issues and are not fully supported in this release.
  • NAT networking includes several performance improvements.
  • VMware Workstation 7.1.2 has been tested with the new free standalone VMware vCenter Converter 4.3. VMware vCenter Converter allows you to convert a single machine or an entire datacenter into virtual machines and supports Windows 7. To download VMware vCenter Converter, see
  • Easy Install now supports older versions of the CentOS operating system.
  • Added Windows 2008R2 and Apache Server 2.2.15 support for ACE Management Server.
Let's hope this update also become more compatible with the latest Linux Kernel, mainly 2.6.36 which should be released next week by Linus Torvalds if there's no more regression bugs lurking on the development cycle Goodluck
