Version 3.1 enhances many of the features present in its most recent public beta, offering improved graphics performance via OpenGL 2.1 support for Windows 7 and Windows Vista, enhanced USB connectivity for your virtual machine with the new EasyConnect feature, and extended support for virtual hard disks up to 2 TB.
