Update for Vimalin for Fusion.

When using macOS Mojave you could have a problem with email notifications due to apple having switched from using the openSSL libraries to LibreSSL. If your computer did not have openSSL installed via for example homebrew then you would get an error when emailing. For example “SSL negotiation failed”. This has been addressed.

Another fix was for users with a Dutch locale and using the dutch language. On selecting a backup target you would get an error ‘MOUNTPOINT’ not found. This has also been addressed

Update for Vimalin for Windows.

A user was having issues with running backups against VMware Workstation 10.x with a lock file. Although Workstation 10.x is officially not supported that is now addressed.
