VMware came up with a Beta program for the upcoming release of VMware Workstation 6.
Here is just a small list of features taken from VMware Workstation 6 Beta Program home page:

Support for Windows Vista - Use Windows Vista as host operating system
Multiple monitor display - You can configure a VM to span multiple monitors, or multiple VMs to each display on separate monitors
Integrated Virtual Debugger - Workstation integrates with Visual Studio and Eclipse so you can deploy, run, and debug programs in a VM directly from your preferred IDE
Automation APIs (VIX API 2.0) - You can write scripts and programs to automate VM testing
Headless mode - You can run VMs in the background without the Workstation UI

You can find an extensive list of features, known issues and notes on
VMware Workstation 6 Beta Release notes page.
VMware Workstation 6 Beta is available for download after registration: http://register.vmware.com/content/beta/ws/registration.html . Version available for download has debugging enabled so it can be somewhat slow. Still it is fun because it has so many feature.
