After being in public beta for less than a month, Oracle has come out today with the VirtualBox 3.2 release of their virtualization software that came from their acquisition of Sun Microsystems.

VirtualBox 3.2 offers up support for virtualizing Mac OS X guests on Apple hardware, memory ballooning support, CPU hot-plugging for Linux and Windows guests, support for multi-monitor guest setups in the GUI, USB tablet/keyboard emulation, RDP video acceleration, NAT engine configuration, and support for executing guest applications from the host system. There's also a variety of other changes.

VirtualBox 3.2 also marks the point of being properly re-branded from a Sun to Oracle product. As mentioned by Oracle's Munich team in the VirtualBox 3.2 release announcement, this software program is now officially known as Oracle VM VirtualBox.
