To: vbox-announce at virtualbox.org

Today Sun released VirtualBox 3.1, a major update introducing the
following major new features:

 * Teleportation (aka live migration); migrate a live VM session from
  one host to another
 * VM states can now be restored from arbitrary snapshots instead of
  only the last one, and new snapshots can be taken from other snapshots
  as well ("branched snapshots")
 * 2D video acceleration for Windows guests; use the host video hardware
  for overlay stretching and color conversion
 * More flexible storage attachments: CD/DVD drives can be attached to
  arbitrary storage controllers, and there can be more than one such
 * The network attachment type can be changed while a VM is running
 * Complete rewrite of experimental USB support for OpenSolaris hosts
  making use of the latest USB enhancements in Solaris Nevada 124 and higher
 * Significant performance improvements for PAE and AMD64 guests (VT-x and
  AMD-V only; normal (non-nested) paging)
 * Experimental support for EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface)
 * Support for paravirtualized network adapters (virtio-net)
