VMA going away in 7.0 ... how to APC UPS shutdown?

I am in the process of setting up VMware free ESXi 6.5, and during the setup process it is stated that VMA support is going away in the future.

As we all know, the power failure shutdown method so far has involved VMA, Java, and APC's free PowerChute Network Shutdown utility, using VMA to shut down guests and turn off the hypervisor.

What is going to be the new method for automatic shutdown of guest operating systems and then turning off the hypervisor, using the APC network management interface, if VMA will not be usable anymore?
