Podcast: What is new in VirtualBox 3.0?


Today we announced VirtualBox 3.0 -- a major revision to our high performance, cross-platform virtualization software. VirtualBox 3.0 introduces the capability to create and run multi-processor virtual machines that can handle heavyweight server-class workloads. It also delivers enhanced graphics support for desktop-class workloads.

VirtualBox software has been rapidly growing in popularity, surpassing 14.5 million downloads worldwide and 4 million registrations since October 2007, with in excess of 25,000 downloads a day. A mere 50 megabyte download, VirtualBox software is incredibly compact and efficient and installs in less than five minutes.

Andy Hall, Senior Product Manager of VirtualBox, joined me to discuss the updates in this release. Listen to the short segment below for an insider's insight about the product.

Comments:

VirtualBox 3.x is fantastic. Installs easily enough and supports just about everything I've thrown at it. The direct3d support is much, much better. My son was happy that he could play Rollercoaster Tycoon again (Vista was not happy with this game.) However, using VBox as a developer sandbox is outstanding. The 'seamless' mode is great.
Any plans for drag and drop between host and guest in the seamless mode? How about better DirectX support for Windows guests?
Superb software. Kudos!
