Release: VMware Workstation 9.0.1

VMware has released version 9.0.1 of its desktop virtualization platform Workstation. This maintenance release can be installed on top of version 9.0 which was released in August this year.

The 9.0.1 update (build 894247) adds support for Ubuntu 12.10 as a host and guest and Solaris 11 as a guest OS. Besides this some issues are resolved, like the ability to mount a .vmdk file as a drive by right-clicking the file in File Explorer and use of more memory on host systems having more than 4 GB of memory as detailed in the release notes.
