This is a patch release of the plug-in.
- Support virtual E1000e NIC
- New VC extension manipulation methods in scripting API
- Fixed data synchronization by retrieving VcVirtualMachine objects from property collector (as opposed to inventory service)
- Improved performance by utilizing the session cache when inventory service is used
- Fixed session cache configuration, preventing object eviction, degrading performance
- Possibility to disable use of inventory service by setting the value of the java system property "com.vmware.o11n.vim.useInventoryService" to "false" (in vmo.properties).
- Other fixes:
- close unused vCenter sessions
- reload plugin configuration after updating it through workflows
- recover unusable vCenter instances after they become usable again
- prevent concurrency issues when using both inventory service and property collector
- other stability and failover improvements
- Fixes related to vSAN API
- Fixes to workflows that add host systems ("Add standalone host" and "Add host to cluster")
- Fixes to OVF importing
- Fixed delay during vCenter session cleanup
- Fixed a limit of 100 objects when returning vCenter inventory objects
- bug fix for KeyAnyValue serialization - vCenter does not accept the generated soap request.
- bug fix in list choosers - criteria in filter field does not match anything.
- fix xpath query syntax in 'Get virtual machines by name'
- fix concurrency issues in vCenter filters management.
- fix linked clone workflows - do not delete snapshot on workflow completion

- removed excess argument to TaskManager.createTask()
- fixed and renamed action "setDisksToNonPersistent"
- added missing API properties VcVirtualMachineVideoCard.use3dRenderer and VcVirtualVideoCardOption.use3dRendererSupported
- fixed session failover - upon vCenter server restart or network drop reconnection thread fails to recover vCenter session with 'InvalidCollectorVersion' exception.
- set socket timeouts for the connections to vCenter server - com.vmware.vmo.plugin.vi4.socketReadTimeout and com.vmware.vmo.plugin.vi4.socketConnectTimeout can be set in vmo.properties to set timeouts in milliseconds. Default values are 1 minute for read and 2 minutes for connect.
- Fixed concurrency issue when updating configuration. Sometimes plugin enters in error state after 2 updates of its configuration.
- fixed connection timeouts during login - com.vmware.vmo.plugin.vi4.socketConnectTimeout was not used when logging in vCenter.
