The only change is to add this new feature description to the Release Note and Dev Guide

A VMX (.vmx) file is the primary configuration file for a virtual machine. When a new VM is
created, information on the operating system, disk sizes, and networking is stored in this
file. The VM actively writes to its .vmx file for all the configuration changes. The VMX file
is typically located in the directory where the VM is created. In Windows Vista / Windows
7 / Windows Server 2008, the default location is C:\Users\<your_user_name>\My Documents\Virtual
Machines\<virtual_machine_name>.vmx. In Linux, vmware-cmd -l lists the full path to
all the registered VMX files. Any manual additions to the .vmx file from ESX/ESXi are overwritten
by the entries stored in the vCenter Server database. Therefore, before you edit a .vmx file,
first remove the VM from the vCenter server's inventory and register the VM again after editing.
The CloudStack API that supports passing some of the VMX settings is registerTemplate. The
supported parameters are rootDiskController, nicAdapter, and keyboard. In addition to these
existing VMX parameters, you can now use the keyboard.typematicMinDelay parameter in the registerTemplate
API call. This parameter controls the amount of delay for the repeated key strokes on remote
consoles. For more information on keyboard.typematicMinDelay, see keyboard.typematicMinDelay
