VMware launches Server beta 3

The much expected VMware Server has now reached beta 3 status (build 23869) and brings in two important features:

  • support for background snapshots
  • experimental support for Solairs 10 (including Update 1 and Update 2 beta) x86 / x64 guest OS

Read the official Release Notes and download the beta 3 here.

The virtualization.info Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.

Note that Solaris 10 Update 2 is expected for June, and VMware could want to wait until that moment to finally release VMware Tools for Solairs, after 2 years of experimental support without them on Workstation.
