UPDATE!: As of March 16th 2011, two exciting updates have been provided for XenDesktop 5 customers.
Firstly, we have released a set of tools to help customers migrate from existing XenDesktop 4 deployments to new XenDesktop 5 installations.
Secondly, we are releasing a hotfix to Provisioning Services which integrates the PVS Setup Tool functionality directly into the PVS management console. This allows simple and easy machine creation using PVS and XenDesktop 5.
These tools can be found only in the Custom Download category under Web Packages.
