I’m still doing a lot of VMware work at the moment, so to go alongside the ESXi build numbers blog post, below is a list of vCenter Server Build numbers, and Lifecycle support matrix for them.

The latest version is vCenter Server 6.5 Update 1 released 27th July 2017.

Below is a snapshot of the current versions as of 24 October 2017.

As with any new software test in a development environment first before upgrading to a new major version, let others lead the way on the bleeding edge and wait for Patch 1 to be released.

Below is a snapshot of the current versions as of 18 December 2018.
