VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware. Targeted at server, desktop and embedded use, it is now the only professional-quality virtualization solution that is also Open Source Software.

Some of the features of VirtualBox are:

  • Modularity. VirtualBox has an extremely modular design with well-defined internal programming interfaces and a client/server design. This makes it easy to control it from several interfaces at once: for example, you can start a virtual machine in a typical virtual machine GUI and then control that machine from the command line, or possibly remotely. VirtualBox also comes with a full Software Development Kit: even though it is Open Source Software, you don't have to hack the source to write a new interface for VirtualBox.
  • Virtual machine descriptions in XML. The configuration settings of virtual machines are stored entirely in XML and are independent of the local machines. Virtual machine definitions can therefore easily be ported to other computers.

# The following items were fixed and/or added:
* VMM: fixed restoring of the auxiliary TSC MSR in VT-x that caused host BSODs on Windows 8.1 hosts and unpredictable behavior on other hosts
* VMM: provide fake values for a couple of MSRs to make more guests happy on certain hosts
* VMM: fixed detection of VT-x on certain machines where the BIOS would not set the VMX LOCK feature bit, which affected the VM settings in the GUI
* VMM: fixed TPR threshold which caused BSODs on Windows XP guests that use the I/O APIC (VT-x only)
* VMM: fixed PATM saved state incompatibility for software virtualized VMs
* VMM: don't fail if AMD-V isn't available if the VM is configured to use software virtualization
* GUI: fixed guest resize breakage on visual representation mode change (when switching from normal to fullscreen etc)
* GUI: make sure the guest screen is resized after restoring a VM from a saved state if the host screen size changed
* GUI: disabled SCROLL LED sync from HID LEDs synchronization (Mac OS X hosts only)
* Webcam passthrough improvements including GUI support (see the manual for more information)
* Guest Control: implemented more IGuestSession methods
* Guest Control: added support for deleting and renaming guest files + directories in VBoxManage
* Guest Control: various bugfixes
* API: incorrect handling of hardware UUID default value, resulting in an all zero DMI/SMBIOS UUID, which leads to Windows requesting re-activation
* 3D support: fixed crash on shutdown if 2D video acceleration is enabled (Mac OS X hosts only)
* 3D support: miscellaneous fixes
* Storage: fixed detection of CD/DVD media when switching from an empty to a host drive with passthrough enabled
* Storage: fixed hang of the VM process when the disk is full under certain circumstances
* NAT: listen for changes of NAT Network setting at runtime
* NAT: NAT Network DHCP server now saves leases to a persistent storage
* Main: monitor changes in host DNS configuration
* Mac OS X host: reworked a mechanism of adding a VM desktop alias from the VM selector
* Mac OS X installer: remove old kernel extensions during upgrade
* Linux Additions: correctly set umask before installing
* X11 Additions/3D: fix freezes starting 3D desktop
* X11 Additions/3D: fix depth buffer support
* X11 Additions/3D: fix Age Of Empires 3 rendering
* Windows Additions/3D: fix Google Earth plugin rendering
* Windows Additions/WDDM: autoresize fixes
