Vimalin for Fusion 2.5.432 update

Vimalin for Fusion 2.5.432 update

This is a bugfix update for a few issues in the user interface.

https://www.vimalin.com/download/Vimalin-2.5.432.dmg
(or use the Vimalin -> "Check for Updates" menu option)

Please note that the update recommendation is to first uninstall your existing Vimalin application by dragging it to the Trash (or for our English users, drag it to the Bin).
Only after the old Vimalin is uninstalled run the installer to update to Vimalin 2.5.432

Here's the list of changes since version 2.0.425:

Full Disk Access requirement
The check for this requirement is more stern. If you do not add Vimalin to Full Disk Access then you are not going to get past the initial screen.
The reasoning here is that none of the features will work anyways. Another important one was that it triggered support issues by people who had overlooked the requirement.
The screen explaining you the steps you need to take now also has a link to the site, which explains why we need this.

General changes

  • Deleting a VM in VMware Fusion which still has 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.


Backup Target:

  • There was a parsing issue with shares using a particular naming scheme (containing the letters "on"). As a result the file system of those disk was not correctly detected and you could not set it as a backup target. This has been fixed.

  • Added support for the exfat file system.

Backup Jobs:

  • 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:

  • 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.
