VMware App Volumes 4.0

The long-awaited version for App Volumes has been released. For those who remember App Volume 3.0, it was taken down by VMware within a week (if I remembered correctly). It was a version that cannot be in placed upgrade and it was a new architecture completely.

It was a right move that VMware removed it and with version 4.0. This wasn't the case.

In place upgrade was possible and co-existence of version 2.x and 4.x can be achieved.

To list a few of the new features below:
