Naujos svarbiausios funkcijos

  • Techninės įrangos virtualizacijos (VT-x ir AMD-V) palaikymas MacOS X sistemose.
  • 64-bit’ų plaformų palaikymas 32-bitų sistemose (tačiau tai vis dar eksperimentinė funkcija).
  • Įtraukta Intel Nehalem virtualizacijos pagerinimai (EPT ir VPID).
  • Eksperimentinė 3D akseleracija per OpenGL.
  • Eksperimentiniai LsiLogic ir BusLogic SCSI kontroleriai.
  • Pilnas VMDK/VHD palaikymas.
  • Naujas NAT varikliukas su žymiai geresne sparta ir kitomis svarbiomis funkcijomis (pvz., ICMP echo (ping) palaikymu).
  • Naujas „Host Interface Networking“ Windows ir Linux sistemoms su lengvesniu nustatymu.
