Changes for upcoming VMLite Version 8 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 52
VMLite Workstation 3.2.6

Main New Features

(1) 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

(2) 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.

(3) Allow two or more people to share the same physical computer by running separate virtual machines on separate monitors,
USB keyboards and USB mouses.

(4) VMLite Portable - runs from USB flash drives or external hard disks. We will offer a paid version installed on 16-G flash drives, along with a VBoot Linux.

Logon Credentials

(1) Add Domain name to Logon Credentials dialog, so a user can specify a domain name to join when logon to the vm.

(2) If no logon Credentials are saved, don't display the username/password dialog when vm starts

(3) Fix a crash bug on XP when logon credentials are empty

(4) Auto logon support for Vista, Windows 7, 2008 Server, 32- and 64- bit

VMLite XP Mode Wizard

(1) Allow user to specify memory size and number of virtual processors

(2) Fix XP Mode exe extraction error when stored in an unicode path

(3) Improve support importing from virtual disk files created from other virtualizers, such as VMware. After importing, vm should boot.

(4) add argument to virtual app shortcut
RunDll32.exe vmlitert.dll,LaunchVmShortcut "VMLite XP Mode" "Internet Explorer.lnk" 1 www.vmlite.com

(5) add virtual app shortcut to launch any programs inside the vm
RunDll32.exe vmlitert.dll,LaunchVmProgram "VMLite XP Mode" "c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" www.vmlite.com

(6) Fix "Failed to initialize" error when creating xp mode vm, due to virtual hard disk driver


New Virtual Disk Wizard

(1) Allow user to specify a disk format, VDI, VHD, VMDK, HDD.


Shared Folders

(1) Shared folders and virtual apps works on Windows 2000 as guest operating system.

(2) Fix shared folders error when writing to host, 32-bit guest to 64-bit host

(3) Greatly improve the performance when right click on shared folders inside a vm


Linux Guest Additions

(1) Automatically install Linux Guest Additions from menu, it will download the additions from our server


Misc:

(1) don't assign host CDROM to vm if not present.

(2) don't enable bridged network adapters that can't be assigned IP addresses.

(3) support mounting floppy disk images, and cdrom/dvd ISO file with our virtual disk driver. You can use the following command to mount an iso file:
vmlitectl mount my-cd.iso

(4) many other bug fixes not listed above

Attached is a screenshot of the Single App Mode, the apps in green borders are running from vm, but look like host apps, note the taskbar buttons.

Another major feature, drag and drop between host and vm, is also being implemented. Might be the release after next version.
