VMware today began shipping Fusion 3, a major update to their virtualization software for Mac OS X. According to the company, this version of the software includes more than 50 new features and enhancements. Some of the highlights include:

  VMware Fusion 3 is the first to enable the full Windows 7 experience, side-by-side with your Mac, complete with Windows Aero and Flip 3D.

  Support for 4-way SMP to maximize performance on the latest iMac and Mac Pro. Lower overhead and up to 2X faster resume time for a suspended virtual machine.

  Banish the start menu and launch Windows apps from the new "always-on" applications menu, even when VMware Fusion isn't running. VMware Fusion provides convenient new ways to experience Windows applications like Mac applications.

  Built from the ground up for the Mac, VMware Fusion 3 leverages Mac OS X Snow Leopard's advanced architecture with a new 64-bit core engine and native support for the 64-bit kernel, delivering even better Windows on Mac performance.

  Support for OpenGL 2.1 and DirectX 9.0c Shader Model 3 will enable users to run their favorite 3D Windows games and applications - all without rebooting.

Registered owners of VMware Fusion 1 and 2 can upgrade to Fusion 3 for $39.99. For new users, Fusion 3 is priced at $79.99.

VMware also offers a free 30-day trial of Fusion 3. You can download it here and use the key "JN28P-7UJ8M-H8K33-0202P-9EPH4" to get started.
