vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling v3.32

New Release – vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling v3.32

You may already know I’m a big fan of vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling, so you should be not surprised that I follow closely the development of this fling. Last few days like everybody else in the tech world I was busy with Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, but I still managed to notice that the development team released a new version: vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling v3.32.

If you still don’t use the fling (why wouldn’t you?), see the article How to Install vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling. If you just need to update it, see How to Update vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling.

Update 22 January 2018: Development Team does a great job on updating the fling, so here it is the new v3.33 version of vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling.

So, let’s see, what’s new in vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling?

vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling v3.32 – Features and Improvements

For this release, the development team focused on the vApps. Finally we have power operations on vApps.
