So when will we see the get the next version of ESX?

Rumors rumors…….

This came up on SearchVMware (Hannah Drake - Associate Editor of SearchVMware.com)

**The release of VMware Infrastructure 4 is slated for first half of this year. What will happen to the current VCP exam, which focuses on VI3?
**
Typically, when an updated product is released, the older product will continue to be the focus of the exam for the greater part of a year. In this case, VMware would make the announcement that it's retiring the VI3-focused VCP exam in a year. The new exam usually won't become available for six to nine months after the product is released. Also, it takes a short while for people to shift platforms and upgrade to a new release.

So Hannah was asked where the information was from and the reply received was:

“actually right from Bogomil Balkansky (sr dr. product marketing, VMware)…he stopped by to interview two weeks ago."

So do think we can all expect a new version of VI before June 30th??

What do you all say? Will the release be ready or is VMware jumping the gun?
