VirtualBox 4.1.0 Beta 3

Da Oracle  (Open Source)
Valutazione dell'utente

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 major new features were added:
* Support for cloning of VMs
* GUI: enhanced wizard for creating new virtual disks
* GUI: new wizard for copying virtual disks
* GUI: keep the aspect ratio in scale mode (Windows and OSX hosts only)
* VMM: raised the memory limit for 64-bit hosts to 1TB
* Experimental support for PCI passthrough for Linux hosts, see Section 9.6, “PCI passthrough”
* Windows guests: Experimental WDDM graphics driver
* Guest Additions: modules and features now are represented as facilities to have a common interface for frontends
* Networking: new network attachment mode "Generic Driver", which offers an open plugin architecture for arbitrary and separately distributable virtual network implementations
* New Networking Mode UDP Tunnel: allows to interconnect VMs running on different hosts easily and transparently, see Section 6.2, “Introduction to networking modes”
* Experimental support for SATA hotplug added. Currently only supported for hard disks and only with VBoxManage.
* Solaris hosts: New Crossbow based bridged networking driver for Solaris 11 hosts (build 159 and above).
# In addition, the following items were fixed and/or added:
* VMM: more SMP timer fixes
* VMM: fixed sporadic recompiler crashes with SMP guests
* VMM: many small fixes
* GUI: when reverting to a snapshot, ask for taking a snapshot of the current state
* GUI: added a View menu
* GUI: added a setting for the promiscuous mode policy for internal networks, bridged networks and host-only networks
* GUI: the VM description is editable during the runtime of a VM
* GUI: added proxy settings
* GUI: made the number of SATA ports configurable
* GUI: decrease time before showing the VM configuration dialog
* VBoxManage: more convenient configuration of storage controller attachments by automatically determining the port or device parameter when a storage controller has only one port or device per port
* VBoxManage: changed syntax of the guestcontrol command group, fixed various bugs, removed obsolete options
* VBoxBalloonCtrl: new service for automatic dynamic adjustment of the balloon size for running VMs
* Settings: machine names and snapshot names are not allowed to be a valid UUID
* Settings: provide better diagnostics if a single medium is used twice in a VM configuration
* Settings: provide better diagnostics for errors in medium create/merge/clone operations, and fix memory leaks in error cases
* Storage: ATA/SATA drives can be marked as non-rotational, i.e. the guest OS will detect them as a SSD if supported, which can improve performance
* Storage: virtual CD/DVD images will be detached if the guest ejects the medium, unless the drive is marked to handle ejects only on a temporary basis
* Storage: the medium UUID can be changed again when attaching a medium for the first time, which allows using images which are exact duplicates including the UUID
* Storage: fixed possible data corruption under certain circumstances with VHD and Parallels images
* Storage: fixed unnecessary expansion when cloning differential images in VDI format
* Storage: fixed detection code to handle empty files for VDI and VMDK format
* Storage: fixed access to CD/DVD images beyond 4GB when using the SATA controller
* Floppy: several bugs have been fixed
* Floppy: make it possible to unmount a host floppy disk
* BIOS: disk-related structures are now checksummed correctly
* USB: many fixes for the Windows USB host driver
* NAT: reduced memory footprint
* Networking: fixed the problem with segmentation offloading when several VMs are transmitting in parallel
* Networking: workaround for a bug in wireshark when operating directly on a capture file created by VirtualBox
* Serial: announce the serial devices in the ACPI tables to make Windows guests find the virtual hardware
* VRDP: support for TLS connections
* VRDP: support for multimonitor client configurations with MS RDP clients
* 3D support: fixed GL_VERSION string for different locales
* Webservice: fixed timeout handling with HTTP 1.1 keepalive, and be more robust when connections fail
* VBoxSVC: fixed regression when several clients trigger autostart simultaneously
* Main: fixed incorrect handling of the medium location for media which are not file based (e.g. iSCSI), which resulted in confusing location values in many places
* JAX-WS client bindings: fixed resource leak
* Sources: fixed USB 2.0 support using extension packs for non-official builds
* Mac OS X hosts: fixed non-VT-x mode on Lion hosts
* Windows hosts: fixed copy'n'paste in the GUI and for the VM window
* Windows hosts (64-bit only): enabled removing of all mediums when removing a VM
* Windows hosts (64-bit only): enabled live snapshot deletion
* Solaris hosts: fixed preemption issue with Solaris 11 hosts (builds 166 and above)
* Guest Additions: improved driver installation on Windows guests
* Guest Additions: fixed high CPU usage while executing guest programs from the host
* Solaris Additions: fixed automounting of shared folders
