Although VMware recently released vSphere 5.5 the older versions 5.0 and 5.1 are still actively maintained (as per their Lifecycle Product Matrix). Yesterday they released vCenter 5.0 and ESXi 5.0 Update 3 and a new patch for ESXi 5.1 (Build 1312873).
All new releases contains many bug fixes and some security fixes. Here are the links to the lists of fixes:
- vCenter 5.0 Update 3 Release Notes
- ESXi 5.0 Update 3: esx-base, misc-drivers, scsi-hpsa, tools-light
- ESXi 5.1 Build 1312873: esx-base and misc-drivers, net-ixgbe, tools-light,
I updated my VIB matrix to include the new ESXi builds.
Update: I just noticed that vCenter 5.1 was also updated: HP's Customized ESXi 5.0 image was also updated to U3 already.
