VMware Fusion 12.2

VMware has released version 12.2 of its VMware Fusion virtualization app with various bug fixes related to macOS 11 Big Sur. The update resolves an issue that prevented access to port forwarding on a NAT virtual machine if the traffic was routed through the host IP stack on a Big Sur host, and it fixes a bug that prevented Jumbo Frames from being enabled for NAT virtual machines and Host-only virtual networks on Big Sur hosts. VMware Fusion 12.2 also no longer supports macOS 10.15 Catalina and now requires Big Sur or later. (Free/$149.99/$199.99 new, $79/$99 upgrades, 612 MB, release notes, macOS 11+)

  1. This is the end of VMWare’s hypervisor on macOS. From now on you’ll be using Hypervisor.framework, which has some performance problems with certain nested VM scenarios. The pros–and cons–of the new kext security model.

  2. Hello Agen. I have been with Fusion since V.2. I downloaded V.12.2 and I have tried to communicate with VMWare. As each version progresses they are becoming more distant and harder for single users like me to communicate with them. They haven’t answered my emails and their support form isn’t working.
