VMware tools 10.0.0 released and in future it would be a separate release

With the separate release of VMware tools 10.0.0 now VMware made clear, VMware Tools release is no more tied with vSphere release/Esxi builds. I think this is the first time when VMware released VMware Tools separately. As per release note its backward compatible, compatible with Esxi 5.0 and also compatible with Workstation 12.0 and VMware Fusion 8.0.

As per VMware it will allow to get the latest new features and enhancements made to the VMware tools faster to the customers. And that there is no specific reason not to do so.

You can download and install the latest version of VMware Tools from Here,

Yes, VMware now also including release notes specific to VMware Tools. This will allow one to see what’s new in each release, along with compatibility, installation/upgrade information etc.

Full release notes is available Here,

That's it... :)
