A fully supported version of the HTML5 client is released with vSphere 6.5, and the official name will be vSphere Client.  We won't be renaming this Fling, but may start saying things like 'vSphere Client Fling' in addition to the other terms we've used before. Fling features are not guaranteed to be implemented into the product.

Wish this is next standart UI for vCenter. Rather than resource hog, unreliable Web flash insteed.

:-) Upgrade successful to build 3758069

Has the OVA file in the Fling been updated for ver 1.1? File name still says "".

The long 7 digit number is actually the build number, which is the best number for us to identify exactly what's going on.

On the other hand, we find that using version numbers like v1.1 will be easier for most people to type out.

If you want the secret decoder ring, we're tracking these numbers as well, and realized that it will be useful to everyone if we publish them as well. So next update we'll probably add in these build numbers to the official page.

For quick reference, public versions are:

Fling v1.0 = build number 3680819
Fling v1.1 = build number 3758069

During the deployment I was able to SSH with the password given. I am now trying to upgrade the client to the latest version and it is not accepting the password.

successfully (and rather easily) upgraded to 3758069.

Couple notes (most of which were covered already)...
- couldn't SSH with root password, but VAMI worked fine. reboot fixed it.
- adding a working upgrade repo in VAMI would be sweet.

Keep 'em coming!

I had the same problem. I did not change the password. I could log into the management interface on port 5480 but not through SSH.

Rebooting the HTML 5 client VM fixed the issue.

That's very strange. Maybe someone changed the password on the h5client appliance?
