VMware Workstation 8.0.2 available with a few updates plus official Support for Fedora 16 guests

With various customer meetings and the London VMUG meeting I had last week this patch update slipped under the radar. I have been seeing issues with unrecoverable error when moving from guest to host which thankfully has been fixed in the update.

VMware have released (24.1.12) the updated version of their desktop virtualization software VMware workstation 8.0.2 recently. This is a minor updated release with official support to Fedora 16 guest and Ubuntu 11.10 host. Also, VMware confirms that most of the customer issues have been fixed in latest 8.0.2 version.

This is a free update from VMware for all Workstation 8 users.
