The current Tech Preview still has no ability to record activity on a VM's console like VMWare Workstation has been able to for... what... forever?? Why is that? Any good reason?
Unfortunately that is no longer true, even VMware Workstation no longer has that option.

Hopefully that answers some of your questions.
Actually since you are running on OS X there is another way as the capability is built into the host OS. See also: VMware KB: Capturing a video recording using QuickTime player for VMware Technical Support
