Branch: CURRENT, Version: 10.2.5, Package name: open-vm-tools-10.2.5, Maintainer: agc

The Open Virtual Machine Tools (open-vm-tools) are the open source
implementation of VMware Tools. They are a set of guest operating
system virtualization components that enhance performance and user
experience of virtual machines. As virtualization technology rapidly
becomes mainstream, each virtualization solution provider implements
their own set of tools and utilities to supplement the guest virtual
machine. However, most of the implementations are proprietary and are
tied to a specific virtualization platform.

The tools are currently composed of kernel modules for Linux and
user-space programs for all VMware supported Unix-like guest operating
systems. They provide several useful functions like:

* File transfer between a host and guest
* Improved memory management and network performance under
virtualization
* General mechanisms and protocols for communication between host
and guests and from guest to guest

Changelog:
open-vm-tools release 10.2.5 based on build 8068406

Resolved Issues

  * open-vm-tools 10.2.0 does not recognize UFS filesystem partitions

    open-vm-tools 10.2.0 has dropped UFS from the list of known
    file system type. As a result, the default filesystem of Solaris
    and FreeBSD is not recognized. open-vm-tools Services in the
    GuestInfo for the virtual machine do not report these filesystems.
    You might not be able to monitor the disk usage of UFS filesystems
    with vRealize Operations or vCenter Managed Object Browser.

    This issue is resolved in this release.

  * Information about non-existing device mounted to a file system
    was not reported

    Few Linux guest operating systems might have a non-existing
    device mounted to a filesystem. For example /dev/root/.
    open-vm-tools does not report this information.

    This issue is resolved in this release.

Update to 10.2.0

* Use x11/gtkmm3

Changelog:
Compatibility
  * open-vm-tools 10.2.0 is compatible with all supported versions
    of VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5 and later, VMware Workstation 14.0 and
    VMware Fusion 10.0. See VMware Compatibility Guide for more information.

  * Starting with VMware Tools version 10.2.0, Perl script based VMware
    Tools installation for FreeBSD has been discontinued. Going forward,
    FreeBSD systems are supported only through the open-vm-tools packages
    directly available from FreeBSD package repositories. FreeBSD packages
    for open-vm-tools 10.1.0 and later are available from FreeBSD package
    repositories.

Resolved Issues
  * Summary page of the VM does not list the IP address of the VMs in
    the right order

  * Guest authentication fails with a SystemError fault when the requested
    password is expired

  * The free space reported in vim.vm.GuestInfo.DiskInfo for a Linux guest
    does not match with df command in the guest

  * VMware user process might not restart after upgrades of open-vm-tools
