OVF Tool 2.0.1 is now available for download!

We are happy to announce that OVF Tool 2.0.1 was released yesterday. It can be downloaded from here, and is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X (new!). 

This is the first major release since the initial release of OVF Tool 1.0 and a minor upgrade to the OVF Tool 2.0 version that is bundled with Fusion 3.1 and Workstation 7.1. I have included an excerpt from the README below which describes the changes:

Changes since 2.0.0
. Fixed bug that caused OVF Tool not to work with the “Import from vSphere”
feature on the VMware Virtual Appliance Marketplace.
. Fixed launch issue on Linux/Mac if installed in a location where the path
includes spaces.
. Fixed issue with properties when importing to vApprun workspace.

Changes since 1.0.1
. Support for the OVF 1.1 specification.
. Support for OVF packages that includes ISO and floppy images.
. Support for vApprun as target and source.
  (see http://labs.vmware.com/flings/vapprun)
. Support for OVF Tool on the Mac OS X operating system (Intel-only).
. A lax mode (–lax) that enables a best-effort conversion of OVF
packages which do not fully conform to the OVF standard or include
virtual hardware that is not supported by the destination. For example,
VirtualBox (version 3.0 and 3.1) produced OVF packages can be converted in lax mode.
. Bug fix for handling vmxnet3 targets.

Please use the forum on the download page to post any comments or issues with the tool. We would like to hear to hear from you.
