View Horizon?

I just noticed today that View is now View Horizon. Is this a seperate product? I'm a bit lost. I see View Horizon 5.2 is available but I'm confused as if this is something current view users and update to or if this is a seperate product. Can anyone fill me in? Thank you

Horizon View will apply to version 5.2. The change or update is a product update to 5.2 from 5.1.2. but core broker/agent/client remains.

This new reference for what was VMware View now puts View clearly into our VMware Horizon Suite of components.

When will the binaries for Horizon View be available?  I don't see it as being available on the My VMware site.  I really want to get this in the test lab because I have a few customers that want to try deploying Win8 on VDI.
