For example, IPv6 NAT network support is added, tab handling has been improved (drag open tabs into a new or existing Workstation window), as well as the echo cancellation for Sky and Lync. VMware Workstation 12 Player features all the important features of VMware Workstation 12, and the re-branding brings more consistency to the range.

As for the VMware Fusion 8, it now fully supports Windows 10 and El Capitan, and brings you a couple of new options that will enhance your working experience.
