Sun VirtualBox 2.2 is released!

It's out there so what does it contain? In a nutshell:

Share and Publish

  • export and import virtual machines using OVF support

Faster and more Powerful

  • hypervisor speedups
  • guests can have a max of 16Gb RAM (up from 3.5Gb)
  • 3D acceleration for OpenSolaris and Linux guests

Easier

  • smarter defaults (audio, USB, VT-x)
  • Host-only networking for using server guests offline
  • removed previous limitations such as not mixing VT-x and non-VTx guests. (64- and 32-bit guests)

You can hear all about these features in the April edition of The VirtualBox Live show and I'll be discussing a few of these features in more detail in the coming weeks.

Andy,
Thanks for the tip-off, very interesting.
For everyone's benefit, the VirtualBox coverage starts around 1 min 15sec into the show until 2min 20-ish.

Cheers,
