It's a new feature. Workload Partitions (WPARs) are a new virtualization feature of AIX® 6.1.

the IBM Workload Partitions Managerâ„¢ for AIX (WPAR Manager) is now available to facilitate management of WPARs on multiple systems. With the WPAR Manager, you can create, clone, start, stop and monitor WPARs on multiple systems from a single interface

That does not explain what a WPAR itself is, which was the original question.
