Vimalin for Windows 2.5.432 update

Vimalin for Windows 2.5.432 update

Here's the awaited FREE update to Vimalin that adds full support for the latest Workstation 15.5
This is the first release where both the Windows as well as the macOS product are in sync.

https://www.vimalin.com/download/Vimali … .5.432.exe
(or use the Vimalin -> "Check for Updates" menu option)

How-to update
First uninstall the old version from the Add/Remove programs or in Windows 10 the Settings -> Apps & Features screen. If you keep defaults, you are fine and can click next, next next, finish and nothing changes.
Only after the old Vimalin is uninstalled run the installer to update to Vimalin 2.5

Here's the list of changes since version 2.0.404:


General changes

  • Support for VMware Workstation 15.5

  • Update to latest OpenSSL library 1.0.2t

  • Update to latest 7z version 19.00

  • Feature wise this brings Vimalin For Windows on par with Vimalin for Fusion

  • The job scheduler had a bug where under certain conditions it could get stuck.

  • Removing a VM in VMware Workstation and then deleting the VM from disk, but still having a VM scheduled in Vimalin would cause blank lines on the opening screen. This now no longer happens as we check for the physical location of the vmx file and not display it any more if not in the expected location.


Added new guest OS support for:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8,

  • Oracle Linux 8,

  • Linux Kernel 5.x,

  • FreeBSD12,

  • Debian 10

Backup Target:

  • Added support for the exfat file system.

Backup Jobs:

  • Running a backup when backup target isn't connected now warns you that the disk is not connected, instead of fail silently.

  • Removing a VM from the list now removes all the already scheduled jobs with it as well.

  • Removing a job would indeed prevent it from getting scheduled in the future, but an already scheduled job would still run. This is no longer the case.

Schedules:

  • For the year schedule it would not record any date change.

  • For a year schedule it would not always display the next date it runs (it would still run, but it is nice to see that).

  • Keyboard navigation in the grid could get out of whack. This was due to using an keydown event where it should have used an keyup event.

  • Added a hint for select mode on how-to get to edit mode.

  • When in select mode, changing rows now keeps the settings in readonly state as intended.
