VI 3.5 Update 1 released - ESXi finally has full HA support!

I thought VMware were going to make a liar of me for a minute, but as reported here VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 1, ESX 3.5 Update 1 and ESXi 3.5 Update 1 have been released on April 10th. Several other plugins (Update Manager, Converter) have also received Update 1's.

Doesn't look to be anything mind blowing in the release notes, but one thing that stands out is that 3i finally has full HA support (albeit a homogenous cluster is required). Well done VMware, I'm glad we didn't have to wait for the next major release for that!

I'll go through an upgrade over the weekend and report back any findings, unless Mike beats me to it of course :-)
