VI Perl Toolkit 1.5 Released Jan. 17th 2008

Kutz Profile: Akutz

The latest version (1.5) of the formidable VI Perl Toolkit was released last week. What does the new download hold in store for eager developers? Well:

– Supports connecting to and managing VC 2.5, ESX 3.5, and ESX 3i servers

– Increased supported platform support (that you can install the VI Perl Toolkit on)

– The virtual appliance containing the VI Perl Toolkit is now in Open Virtual Machine Format (OVF)

– A whole new slew of documentation

– A new Web-services library that enables SMASH and CIM management of ESX servers (experimental)

The new version of the toolkit has also fixed some pressing issues lingering from 1.0:

– The scripts finally prompt for passwords so the passwords are not available in process lists.

– Can handle special characters in element names (such as spaces)
