Last couple of updates have removed the open-vm-tools-desktop which I believe supported the cut-copy-paste feature between desktops.

Now cut-copy-paste and the open-vm-tools-desktop is no longer available. Is there a plan to re-add it or is it gone for good ?
Won't be happy if it's gone for good as we use the cut-copy-paste feature all the time when migrating from 12 to 15.

And before you ask - we cannot do an in-place upgrade of 12 as we built all our 12sp3 servers from sp0. Which is an not recommended upgrade path.
