VirtualBox 6.1 Release Candidate 1 verfügbar

Nach insgesamt 2 Betaversionen von VirtualBox 6.1 scheint man so langsam auf der Zielgeraden zu sein, um die neue Version für die User bereitzustellen. Aktuell steht nämlich der erste Release Candidate von VirtualBox 6.1 zum Download bereit. Den Download findet ihr HIER.

Wie immer wurden diverse Fehler behoben und an der Stabilität gearbeitet. Hier der Changelog:

  • GUI: Some issues related to mouse integration cursor scaling were addressed (bug#14366), more to go
  • GUI: Few usability related fixes for export appliance wizard
  • GUI: Fixed/improved mouse pointer scaling
  • GUI: Fixed crash in cloud related wizards when accessibility functionality was enabled
  • GUI: Soft keyboard visual improvements, and fix crash for first use
  • GUI: Added the missing restriction options for disabling new functionality such as the VISO creator
  • GUI: More consistent medium selection (both showing known images and allowing to select using the file picker)
  • Documentation: updated supported host operating systems, added few new manual pages (more to come later)
  • Virtualization core: Improvements for nested hardware-virtualization on Intel CPUs
  • VBoxSVGA/VMSVGA: Support YUV2 and related texture formats with hosts using OpenGL (macOS and Linux), which accelerates video playback when 3D is enabled by delegating the color space conversion to the host GPU
  • VBoxSVGA/VMSVGA: Several drawing fixes for the 3D case
  • USB: Improvements for EHCI controller implementation
  • USB: Filter can now specify port path, uniquely identifying a port in a system
  • NAT Network: Use non-blocking sockets on Linux for accepted incoming connections (port forwarding)
  • PCnet-ISA: Added new network adapter type, currently CLI only
  • SMBIOS: Store system UUID in little endian format which is the default for new VMs, while existing VMs stick to the old VirtualBox behavior of storing them in big endian format for backwards compatibility to avoid breaking the activation status of Windows VMs VBoxSDL frontend: Fixed running on Windows hosts
  • VBoxManage: show “unrestricted guest” and “nested HW virtualization” CPU features when listing the host information
  • Shared Clipboard: Implemented experimental support for file transfers for Linux hosts on Windows guests (disabled by default)
  • Linux host and guest: Support Linux 5.4 (bug #18945)
  • Linux host and guest: Force disabling of kernel module signing during build (user can do it afterwards)
  • Windows Guest Additions: Many fixes for drawing problems in the driver for VBoxSVGA
  • Windows Guest Additions: Fixes for legacy VBoxVGA adapter, restore previously working cases
  • Windows Guest Additions: Restore VHWA functionality for VBoxSVGA

Da es sich hierbei um keine finale Version handelt, geschieht die Nutzung auf eigene Gefahr.
