VMware Player updated to 2.5.2

Actually the new version is available for some days now, but I just noticed that there’s an update available for download, containing some new features and fixes.

{openx:6}

Version 2.5.2 of VMware Player includes support for some new operating systems:

  • Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2
  • Asianux Server 3.0 Service Pack 1
  • openSUSE 11.1
  • Ubuntu 8.10
  • Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Also, there’s “experimental support” for even more operating systems:

  • Fedora 11
  • FreeBSD 7.1
  • Mandriva Linux 2009
  • Novell SLE11.0
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8
  • Sun Solaris 10 Update 6
  • Ubuntu 9.04

Now, maybe this fixes my problems when running Solaris 10u6 on VMware Player 2.5.1. Especially on Windows Vista the player would randomly crash, thereby taking down the whole OS with a BSOD.
