Fling update: Boomerang 2.0.0 released

VMware labs released a new version for their Boomerang fling, now bringing the version number to 2.0.0. The download size is about 12MB.

Quote taken from the Fling page:

VMware Boomerang is a radically simple client application that allows you to use multiple vSphere servers simultaneously. Simply select “Add a Server…” to connect and login to an ESX server, vCenter server, or View Connection Server and you will be presented with a list of all available virtual machines.

What’s new?

This version has a few bug fixes and the best of all: support for View desktops! For View desktops, you are able to choose between the RDP or PCoIP protocol and launch a remote desktop. Once you have launched a desktop, you will have a fully functional remote desktop experience that matches the existing Windows View Client.

Some features

  • Supports connecting to multiple ESX and VC servers simultaneously.
  • Supports connecting to multiple View Connection Servers simultaneously.
  • Connect to View desktops using PCoIP or RDP.
  • Allows you to save your credentials for easy login to servers.
  • Simple user interface gives you quick access to connecting to a virtual machine or issuing power operations.
  • Servers with large numbers of virtual machines are automatically collapsed into hyperlinks, which you can click to view subsets of the inventory or the entire thing.
  • Search for virtual machines quickly across all your servers.
  • vCenter supports activities like vMotion, High Availability, storage configuration, host provisioning cloning, templates, monitoring, alerts and more.
