Oracle VM VirtualBox es un software  de virtualización para arquitecturas x86, creado originalmente por la empresa alemana Innotek GmbH. Actualmente es desarrollado por Oracle Corporation como parte de su familia de productos de virtualización.

Por medio de esta aplicación es posible instalar sistemas operativos adicionales, conocidos como "sistemas invitados", dentro de otro sistema operativo "anfitrión", cada uno con su propio ambiente virtual. Por ejemplo, se podrían instalar diferentes distribuciones de GNU/Linux en VirtualBox instalado en Windows XP o viceversa.

Hace unos días se publico la versión 3.1.8 de VirtualBox con la siguiente lista de cambios (en):

  • VMM: fixed crash with the OpenSUSE 11.3 milestone kernel during early boot (software virtualization only; bug #5457)
  • VMM: fixed invalid state during teleportation
  • VMM: fixed OS/2 guest crash with nested paging enabled
  • VMM: fixed massive display performance loss (AMD-V with nested paging only)
  • GUI: fixed off-by-one bug when passing absolute mouse coordinates to the guest (3.1.6 regression)
  • GUI: show the real version of the Guest Additions, not the interface version
  • GUI: when adding a DVD or floppy slot in the VM mass storage settings dialog, don't attach a random medium but just leave the slot empty
  • GUI: added --seamless and --fullscreen command line switches (bug #4220)
  • GUI: fixed a SEGFAULT under rare circumstances
  • 2D Video acceleration: fixed display issues when working with non 32-bit modes (bugs #6094 & #6208)
  • LsiLogic: Fixed detection of hard disks attached to port 0 when using the drivers from LSI
  • ATA: Fixed sporadic crash with Linux guests when having a hard disk and DVD drive on the same channel (bug #6079)
  • Network: allow to start a VM even if not all network adapters are attached
  • Network: promiscuous mode support for e1000 and simparavirtualized adapters (bug #6519)
  • NAT: fixed ICMP latency (non-Windows hosts only; bug #6427)
  • SCSI: fixed guest crashes under certain circumstances when booting from SCSI devices
  • VBoxManage: fixed modifyvm --natnet default
  • Solaris Hosts: fixed a kernel panic when bridged networking might fail to initialize
  • Solaris Hosts: fixed priority tagged VLAN packets in bridged networking
  • Shared folders: fixed issue with copying read-only files (Linux guests only; bug #4890)
  • Shared folders: renamed the guest kernel module from vboxvfs to vboxsf to make it load on demand by the Linux kernel. Fixes mounting from /etc/fstab in Ubuntu 10.04
  • Shared folders: fixed setuid file permissions (Solaris guests only).
  • Shared folders: fixed deleting directories recursively (Solaris guests only; bug #6513)
  • Guest Additions: support seamless and dynamic resizing on certain older X11 guests (bug #5840)
  • Solaris Additions: fixed OpenGL library dependencies (bug #6435)
  • Keyboard/Mouse emulation: fixed handling of simultaneous mouse/keyboard events under certain circumstances (bug #5375)
  • Mouse emulation: never switch straight back from Explorer to IntelliMouse mode as it confuses the FreeBSD mouse driver (bug #6488)
  • SDK: fixed memory leak in IDisplay::takeScreenShotSlow() (bug #6549)
  • 3D support: fixed Final frame of Compiz animation not updated to the screen (Mac OS X only) (bug #4653)
  • VRDP: allow to bind to localhost only on Mac OS X (bug #5227)
  • Linux hosts: add host USB support for Ubuntu 10.04 and other hosts without the hal daemon or usbfs (bug #6343)
  • webservice: more structs and array fixes in PHP bindings (bug #5657)
  • Windows hosts: make the bridged networking driver notify dll be correctly unregistred on uninstall (bug #5780)
