When did the Invirtus VM Optimizer tool disappear?

I've been a big fan of the Invirtus Virtual Machine Optimizer tool that can recover space in virtual machines and make them run faster. I knew they were purchased by Visioncore (or were somehow merged with them) but I hadn't really paid much attention to the product in the last year or two since my copy worked great. But recently I tried to optimize my Windows 7 beta VM, and it occurred to me that there might be a new version I should check out. Instead, I've discovered that on Visioncore's site only vOptimizer Pro is mentioned, which only supports VMware ESX Server, and not VMware Workstation. They apparently still "support" vOptimizer as it is listed in the support area, but other than documentation there aren't any other files available.

So what happened? Did they just give up on the product? What a bummer. So far I haven't found anything comparable.
