Updated OS Support
Workstation 16 supports the latest 2004 version of Windows 10, including Hyper-V mode compatibility for Device & Credential Guard and WSL, as well as supporting new releases of the most popular Linux distributions such as Red Hat, Fedora, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu and more.
Containers and Kubernetes Clusters
Workstation 16 Pro and Player both provide a new CLI for building and running OCI containers and Kubernetes clusters: ‘vctl.’ Supports thousands of pre-built container images, as well as building custom images from standard Dockerfiles.
Graphics Engine Enhancements for Windows and Linux
Workstation 16 now provides a DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1 compliant virtual graphics device to Windows virtual machines, adding new compatibility for hundreds of apps and games. Linux hosts can now use Intel Integrated GPUs with our new Vulkan rendering engine, delivering DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.3 to VMs without needing more a powerful discrete GPU.
vSphere 7 Compatibility
Workstation has been updated with compatibility for vSphere 7, including virtual machine hardware and remote ESXi and vCenter Server connections

Demonstration of VMware Fusion's upcoming Unity feature which allows users to interact with Windows applications on Mac OS X as if they were Mac applications. I'm using mine to create several different operating system VMs on my Mac for different IT classes I'm taking in school. With VMware I'm able to quickly bring up, lets say, Windows 7 or Microsoft Server 2012 and have them run side by side while still running Mountain Lion OS X in the background.
About This File
This is the current version of VMware Tools for OS X / macOS from the VMware CDS repository for Fusion 11.5.0
VMware are no longer including the ISO images as separate 'packages' in the CDS respository as of Fusion 11.5.0, instead the ISO images are included as part of the 'core' download which is 522 MB.
It is not possible to download the com.vmware.fusion.zip.tar due to upload limits.
However, I have extracted the darwin.iso and darwinPre15.iso from the 'core' and uploaded to this thread.
If you prefer to download the 'core' tar file and extract the ISO's they are located in the following directory in the tar file:
Install Mac Os X Vmware
Please note: In the latest VMwareGfx.kext from Fusion 8.5.5 onwards VMware have discontinued the 2D-Acceleration code, and graphics performance is better now, thanks to Zenith432 for the update.
To check for the latest version visit http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/.
The various VMware Tools downloads are located under the packages folder for each version upto and including 11.1.0.
