VMware Fusion 3.1 supports OpenGL 2.1, 2TB virtual disks

updated 09:40 am EDT, Mon March 15, 2010

Boot Camp support improved

VMware has announced that Fusion 3.1 is now available as a public beta. The update brings improvements to graphics performance, with support for OpenGL 2.1 on Windows Vista and 7. A new USB "EasyConnect" feature is claimed to simplify device assignment, now remembering preferences for each device, while port conflicts are avoided when using the PC Migration utility.

Users will be able to create larger virtual machines, as v3.1 now supports eight-way SMP and virtual disks with 2TB of storage allocation. Disk configuration has also been improved with options to avoid authentication dialogs and duplicate entries.

Current customers can download the Fusion 3.1 beta directly from the company. Launch information for the final version has yet to be announced.
