  1. Hi, First of all, thanks for your efforts in building a open source vSphere simulator. I would like to know the current status of SimDK. I believe there has not been any updates after the 0.0.1 version of the product. Are you actively working on the project ?. if yes, by when can we expect the next version of SimDK ?

    • Thank you for your gratitude, it means a lot. I am unfortunately no longer actively working on this project. I encourage those who wish to work on to simply fork the code onto a free SCM like GitHub or just check it out and play with it on your own. It’s open sourced with the BSD license, so feel free to do with it what you will.
