This announcement doesn't say it, but Oracle released several patches to OVM Server at the same time. These are available on the OVM 3.1.1 yum repository (which you must have a support contract to get, I beleive.) I havent' seen it written anywhere that it's important to install the OVM Server patches as well as the OVM Manager patches., though.
I updated my Manager, updated my local yum repo, and then attempted to update all three of my servers, but they didn't grab anything new; are the packages that were upgraded fairly esoteric?
I can't guess why your yum repo update didn't pick up the new packages. I updated mine today, Thursday, in the morning, Eastern US time, and picked them up okay. I'll try to remember what was updated:
Seems like there was another one, maybe two. I don't have the information handy right now.
I've synced my YUM sever three times since the release and haven't seen any new updates for the VM server itself. I did upgrade the VM Manager to 399 without any issues.
Have your configured your YUM update server to the latest OVM3 patches? Mine picked up the new packages as well, even though it had already shown updates at the end of last week as well, which I already had applied.
What versions are these packages on your updated boxen?
[root@ovm1 ~]# rpm -q xen
[root@ovm1 ~]# rpm -q ovs-agent
I have on my VM Server:
[root@milton ~]# rpm -q xen
[root@milton ~]# rpm -q ovs-agent
The VM Server updates applied via VM Manager on Aug 2, this was done before I applied VM Manager build 399 (but is same day as annouced release (Aug 2))

Have any of you tried to unpresent a repository from any server in the server pool since you have updated the OVMM with build 399?
I noticed new OVM Server patches released today:
