A new release of VMware Workstation 8.0.3 adds support for Ubuntu 12.04

There has been a quiet release of VMware Workstation few days back which escaped of my radar a bit since I was at vacations. This is another maintenance release only with very few new features (only one listed) and some bug fixes as well.

Also, few weeks back I reported on easy install feature with Ubuntu and how it works in my article here. In fact the article explain it through VMware Player, but it's the same thing. It makes actually the installation process simpler and faster. You have to validate less screens and so the installation process can install the guest OS quicker.

What is new in VMware Workstation 8.0.3?

New in this release – Ubuntu 12.04 support.

What's been fixed?

VMware floppy device out-of-bounds memory write – Due to a flaw in the virtual floppy configuration it was possible to perform an out-of-bounds memory write. This vulnerability allowed a guest user to crash the VMX process or to potentially execute code on the host.

VMware SCSI device unchecked memory write – Due to a flaw in the SCSI device registration it was possible to perform an unchecked write into memory. This vulnerability allowed a guest user to crash the VMX process or to potentially execute code on the host.

What are the know issues?

The VMware Workstation development team has still a lot to work on. There is a long list of bugs which need to be fixed. You can have a look at the Release Notes page here.

I have detailed the VMware Workstation 8 new features in my detailed article here: VMware Workstation 8 new features detailed
