Hola,

tras la compra de Sun por Oracle, ya tenemos disponible la primera versión de VirtualBox ofrecida por Oracle, denominada Oracle VM VirtualBox. En este caso es una versión mayor con muchas características añadidas como mejor uso de RAM, soporte para nuevos micros, soporte para instalar Mac OS X en hardware Mac, …

El Changelog es el siguiente:

VirtualBox 3.2.0 (released 2010-05-18)

This version is a major update. The following major new features were added:

  • Following the acquisition of Sun Microsystems by Oracle Corporation, the product is now called Oracle VM VirtualBox and all references were changed without impacting compatibility
  • Experimental support for Mac OS X guests (see the manual for more information)
  • Memory ballooning to dynamically in- or decrease the amount of RAM used by a VM (64-bit hosts only) (see the manual for more information)
  • Page Fusion automatically de-duplicates RAM when running similar VMs thereby increasing capacity. Currently supported for Windows guests on 64-bit hosts (see the manual for more information)
  • CPU hot-plugging for Linux (hot-add and hot-remove) and certain Windows guests (hot-add only) (see the manual for more information)
  • New Hypervisor features: with both VT-x/AMD-V on 64-bit hosts, using large pages can improve performance (see the manual for more information); also, on VT-x, unrestricted guest execution is now supported (if nested paging is enabled with VT-x, real mode and protected mode without paging code runs faster, which mainly speeds up guest OS booting)
  • Support for deleting snapshots while the VM is running
  • Support for multi-monitor guest setups in the GUI for Windows guests (see the manual for more information)
  • USB tablet/keyboard emulation for improved user experience if no Guest Additions are available (see the manual for more information).
  • LsiLogic SAS controller emulation (see the manual for more information)
  • RDP video acceleration (see the manual for more information)
  • NAT engine configuration via API and VBoxManage
  • Use of host I/O cache is now configurable (see the manual for more information)
  • Guest Additions: added support for executing guest applications from the host system (replaces the automatic system presimparation feature; see the manual for more information)
  • OVF: enhanced OVF support with custom namespace to preserve settings that are not part of the base OVF standard

In addition, the following items were fixed and/or added:

  • VMM: fixed Windows 2000 guest crash when configured with a large amount of RAM (bug #5800)
  • Linux/Solaris guests: PAM module for automatic logons added
  • GUI: guess the OS type from the OS name when creating a new VM
  • GUI: added VM setting for passing the time in UTC instead of passing the local host time to the guest (bug #1310)
  • GUI: fixed seamless mode on secondary monitors (bugs #1322 and #1669)
  • GUI: offer to download the user manual in the OSE version (bug #6442)
  • GUI: allow to set an empty host key to disallow any host key combination (bug #684)
  • GUI: allow to restrict the possible actions when shutting down the VM from the GUI
  • Main: allow to start a VM even if a virtual DVD or floppy medium is not accessible
  • Settings: be more robust when saving the XML settings files
  • Mac OS X: rewrite of the CoreAudio driver and added support for audio input (bug #5869)
  • Mac OS X: external VRDP authentication module support (bug #3106)
  • Mac OS X: Moved the realtime dock preview settings to the VM settings (no global option anymore). Use the dock menu to configure it.
  • Mac OS X: added the VM menu to the dock menu
  • 3D support: fixed corrupted surface rendering (bug #5695)
  • 3D support: fixed VM crashes when using ARB_IMAGING (bug #6014)
  • 3D support: fixed assertion when guest applications uses several windows with single OpenGL context (bug #4598)
  • 3D support: added GL_ARB_pixel_buffer_object support
  • 3D support: added OpenGL 2.1 support
  • 3D support: fixed Final frame of Compiz animation not updated to the screen (Mac OS X only) (bug #4653)
  • 3D support: fixed blank screen after loading snapshot of VM with enabled Compiz
  • Added support for virtual high precision event timer (HPET)
  • OVF: fixed mapping between two IDE channels in OVF and the one IDE controller in VirtualBox
  • OVF: fix VMDK format string identifiers and sort XML elements from rasd: namespace alphabetically as prescribed by standard
  • VBoxShell: interactive Python shell extended to be fully functional TUI for VirtualBox
  • Linux Additions: support Fedora 13 (bug #6370)
  • VBoxManage: fixed overly strict checks when creating a raw partition VMDK (bugs #688#4438)
