New VMware Labs Website
VMware have created a new VMware Labs website to share internal engineering projects not yet ready for inclusion in VMware’s portfolio of visualisation products.
VMware describes the software code released on its new website as ‘Flings.’ Current ‘Flings’ include version 1.3 of the Apache Pivot framework; a runtime code manipulation system for supporting code transformations on any part of a program during execution; and the Onyx standalone application that acts as a proxy between the vSphere Client and the vCenter Server.
The VMWare tools are all offered either under Technical Preview or relevant Open Source License. VMware are calling on the community to test drive their ‘Flings’ and provide them with feedback.
