  1. Thanks for your constant watch!

    Do you have any info about "This patch updates the esx-ui VIB to introduce a new version of VMware Host Client"? What has changed?

    • esx-ui has been patched to version 1.4.0-3959074. As far as I know there is no explicit changelog for the esx-ui embedded in the official release, but there is the changelog with the fling:

      This should help to get an idea where the development is at the moment. I don't find version 1.4 there, but from my observation there are several features mentioned for version 1.5 that are available in 1.4 bundled with ESXi:

      - Add/Edit/Remove users
      - Added menu item for 'reset to native resolution' for in-browser console

      Also based on the build number 1.4 should be anywhere between 1.5 and 1.3, which makes sense ;-)
      haven't verified all features...
