Software Update: VirtualBox 3.2.4

Less than a week after the release of version 3.2.2 of VirtualBox, Oracle has already prepared a successor. This program can be used to install other operating systems on a computer in a virtual environment. That way, different OSes can be used on the same hardware. VirtualBox is available for Windows 2000 and above, Mac OS X, Linux, and Solaris, and can handle a variety of guest operating systems.

VirtualBox is available in two versions. The full version has additional functionality, such as support for USB ports and the remote display protocol, but is only free for private use and evaluation purposes. The extra functionality is closed source and is therefore not present in the open source version. New in version 3.2.0 include the ability to run Mac OS X as a guest OS and dynamically adjust memory size. Version 3.2.4 is a maintenance release, with the following changes and improvements:

The following items were fixed and/or added:

  • GUI: fixed a superfluous resize-event on powering-on VM for X11 (improvement for the 3.2.2 fix)
  • Host-only/bridged networking: fixed guest-to-guest communication over wireless (3.2.0 regression; bug #6855)
  • Storage: fixed a potential guest disk corruption with growing images (3.2.0 regression)
  • Page Fusion: fixed shared module detection for Win64 guests
  • 3D support: allow use of CR_SYSTEM_GL_PATH again (bug #6864)
  • 3D support: fixed a host assertion for some multi-threaded guest applications (bug #5236)
  • 3D support: fixed host crashes with nVIDIA drivers on WDDM startup
  • OVF: fixed import of OVFs with a VM description (annotation) (3.2.2 regression; bug #6914)
  • VRDP: fixed issues with secondary monitors (bug #6759)
