VMware published a blog “Goodbye vSphere Client for Windows (C#) – Hello HTML5” with two announcements: 1. There won’t be the traditional C# based vSphere Client for the next version of vSphere (no one knows the version yet but it’s safe to call it the next version.). 2. The vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling will be supported soon (no exact timetable is given). My guess is that it will make into next release of vSphere if not earlier.
