VirtualBox 3.1.0 OUT NOW! [updated]

Ormai lo sapete che sono un fan di questa soluzione per VM, no?

Oggi è uscita la versione 3.1.0 e la sto scaricando per Mac OS X.

[UPDATE] La 2D acceleration non cambia il fatto che Aero ancora non è compatibile con i driver inclusi nelle VM Additions…

Intanto leggiamoci le belle cose che porta con se:
