VMware has posted a new maintenance patch for Virtual Center, bringing the version up to 2.0.2, build 50618. This release resolves issues associated with databases, virtual machine management, and other critical issues. It also includes several performance fixes.Â From what I see in the release notes, it is mostly a bug roll-up although there are a few new minor features.
