Kurzinfo für die Nutzer der Virtualisierungssoftware VirtualBox. Es gibt neue Versionen zum Download. Denn einmal wurde die Version 5.0.22 zum Download freigegeben als auch die Version 5.1.0 Beta 3.


Wie immer wurden einige Fehler korrigiert. Die Beta sollte nicht produktiv genutzt werden. Hier einmal die Changelogs beider Versionen.

VirtualBox 5.0.22:

This is a maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added:

  • VMM: fixes for certain Intel Atom hosts (bug #14915)
  • VMM: properly restore the complete FPU state for 32-bit guests on 64-bit hosts on Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPUs
  • VMM: new I/O-APIC implementation fixing several bugs and improving the performance under certain conditions (bug#15295 and others)
  • VMM: fixed a potential Linux guest panic on AMD hosts
  • VMM: fixed a potential hang with 32-bit EFI guests on Intel CPUs (VT-x without unrestricted guest execution)

  • Linux Additions: made old X.Org releases work again with kernels 3.11 and later (5.0.18 regression; bug #15319)
  • Linux Additions: fixed X.Org crash after hard guest reset (5.0.18 regression; bug#15354)
  • Linux Additions: don’t stop the X11 setup if loading the shared folders module fails (5.0.18 regression)
  • Linux Additions: don’t complain if the Drag and Drop service is not available on the host

  • ACPI: fixes for passing through the battery information to the guest
  • Main: raised the initial values for RAM, VRAM and hard disk size for certain guests
  • Main: WinXP guests defaults to E1000 (PRO/1000 T Server), better performance
