VMware just updated two of their main products, Workstation and Player to new builds. The two applications share almost the same changes.
One fix refers to a failure with an unrecoverable error when releasing input from the guest to the host (e.g.: moving the cursor from the virtual machine window to the host screen).
Most of the fixes, however, relate to Linux running guests and hosts. As such, copying and pasting from a guest to an Ubuntu 11.10 host should no longer fail. Also, shared folders would not work in Fedora 16 and OpenSuse 12.1 guests.
In the case of Windows, the developer took care of an issue that caused a virtual machine to use a physical disk to fail to power on if the host had a volume backed by more than one physical disk.
In the case of Workstation, machines with Visual Studio 2010 SP1, vix-perl installation failed with dynamic link errors.
