Dear freshmeat.net subscriber,
barsnick just announced version 7.1 of VMware on freshmeat.net.
The changes are as follows:
OpenGL 2.1 support for Windows 7 and Vista guests has been introduced. Graphics
performance has improved. OVF 1.1 support has been added to allow interaction
with VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud. Support has been added for eight-way SMP
and for 2 TB large virtual and raw disks. Intel's AES-NI instructions are now
supported to improve performance with encrypted virtual disks. The list of
supported operating systems has been expanded.
VMware allows you to run 'virtual machines' inside a Linux host. It is not an
emulator. It provides a virtual computer within the host which can boot
whichever OS you decide to put on the filesystem image that is used as a
harddrive. It will run DOS 6.22, Win 3.1, Win9x, WinNT/2000/XP/2003, Linux,
Novell, and more. The only main requirement is a 400 MHz or better machine,
along with lots of RAM (128M minimum, 256M recommended).
Detailed history and release notes are available here:
