virtualbox-logoPersönlich nutze ich schon immer Virtualbox um neue Betriebssysteme auf meinem heimischen PC zu testen und dort allesmögliche „kaputt zu spielen“.

Nun wurde die erste BETA-Version von Virtualbox 4.3.0 veröffentlicht, welches als Major Update installiert werden kann.

Einige Fehler auch unter Windows 8.1 wurden im Bereich der Gasterweiterungen behoben.

  •  VMM: major rewrite of the VT-x code including many bug fixes and performance improvements
  • (for example bug #9659)
  •  GUI: keyboard shortcuts management (input page of global preferences extended with
  • possibility to edit general keyboard shortcuts for VirtualBox Manager and Virtual Machine)
  •  GUI: extended messaging mechanism (new non-modal popup overlays used to show noncritical
  • warnings and provide user with additional information)
  •  GUI: video capturing support (bug #4766)
  •  GUI: host touch devices support (GUI passes host touch-events to guest)
  •  Emulated USB touch devices
