Do I understand correctly when they say that licensing now is done per CPU only in version 510 of VMWare ESXi? See page 3:
http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/vsphere_pricing.pdf

The only restrictions I need to worry about are those on page 6?

Yes the license is now per CPU and can have any number of cores, The VRAM restrictions introduced in v 5.0 are now removed in 5.1.
