VMware vCloud Director 5.6 for Service Providers

Last week, 2014-10-07, VMware released VMware vCloud Director 5.6 for Service Providers (vCD-SP). The following issues have been solved:

  • OpenSSL security issues CVE-2014-0224, CVE-2014-0198, CVE-2010-5298, and CVE-2014-3470 in the Client Integration Plug-in
  • No vApp upload or download option for catalog and vApp authors

The release notes can be found here and the interoperability matrix can be found here

As Tomas Fojta describes in his VCD-SP 5.6 Upgradability article there is no upgrade path from the most recent release of vCloud Director 5.5.2 so if you are a service provider you can either stand up a new vCD-SP 5.6 installation or wait for the next vCD-SP release which will include an upgrade path from vCD 5.5.2.

The vCD-SP product documentation can be found here and you can download the software here.
