The Ubuntu 12.04 boxes have been upgraded to kernel 3.13 (Trusty kernel). This is because even the updated VMWare Tools still occasionally caused kernel panics on kernel 3.8. In our tests, we've observed that VMWare Tools does not cause any kernel panics on kernel 3.13.

  • The Ubuntu 12.04 VirtualBox box in release 2014-02-22 was broken: the VirtualBox guest additions weren't correctly installed because the kernel was incorrectly installed. This has now been fixed.
  • The Ubuntu 12.04 VMWare Fusion box now loads the VMWare Tools kernel modules during startup, so that Vagrant doesn't have to wait so long at the "Waiting for HGFS kernel module" phase.

  • There are now base boxes available based on Ubuntu 14.04. See the README for details.
  • Upgraded VMWare Tools to 9.6.2-1688356 (from VMWare Fusion 6.0.3). This is a major improvement over the VMWare Tools included in the last release (9.6.0-1294478, from VMWare Fusion 6.0.1):

    • Fixes the file corruption bug in VMWare Tools 9.6.1-1378637 (from VMWare Fusion 6.0.2).
    • Fixes compatibility with kernel 3.13.
    • Fixes a number of bugs that could cause the kernel to crash.

If you experienced any crashing/freezing problems with our VMWare Fusion boxes before, then this upgrade will probably help.
