  • Allow Linux (Ubuntu and Fedora) to boot from a virtual disk file in VHD/VMDK/VDI format.

Aug-20-10 VMLite Version 3.2.6 was released, the main new features are listed as below:

  • USB Device Support - add native support for USB devices, such as USB Flash drives, USB Printer and scanners, USB webcams, iPhone, etc. Support OHCI and EHCI, USB 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0
  • Single Virtual Application Mode - when a user starts vm applications from host Start menu, the applications will be put into this mode. Only these applications are displayed on the screen, and seamlessly integrated with host taskbar. This is very similar to Microsoft's virtual application mode.
