Sun Microsystems heeft gisteren versie 2.0.4 van Virtualbox uitgebracht. Dit programma kan worden gebruikt om een ander besturingssysteem op een computer in een virtuele omgeving te installeren. Virtualbox draait onder Windows 2000 en hoger, Mac OS X, Linux en Opensolaris en kan overweg meteen groot aantal gast-besturingssystemen.



De software is in twee verschillende versies verkrijgbaar. De volledige versie heeft meer functionaliteit, zoals ondersteuning voor usb-poorten en remote display-protocol, maar is alleen gratis voor priv├ęgebruik en evaluatiedoeleinden. Deze extra functionaliteit is namelijk closed source en ontbreekt in de andere versie: de opensource-uitvoering. Versie 2.0.4 is een zogenaamde onderhoudsrelease en bevat geen nieuwe functionaliteit. Wel zijn er diverse verbeteringen aangebracht en zijn er een aantal bugs verholpen. Hieronder is het changelog van deze release te vinden:

    The following items were fixed and/or added:

        * VMM: better error reporting for VT-x failures
        * VMM: don't overflow the release log with PATM messages
        * VMM: fixed save state restore in real mode (software virtualization only)
        * GUI: work around a Qt bug on Mac OS X
        * GUI: properly install the Qt4 accessible plugin
        * SATA: error message when starting a VM with a VMDK connected to a SATA port
        * SATA: fixed Guru mediation when booting OpenSolaris/64; most likely applies to other guests as well
        * Network: don't crash when changing the adapter link state if no host driver is attached
        * VHD: fixed bug which prevents booting from VHD images bigger than 4GB
        * VRDP: fixed a repaint problem when the guest resolution was not equal to the client resolution
        * Clipboard: don't crash when host service initialization takes longer than expected (Linux hosts only; bug #2001)
        * Windows hosts: VBoxSVC.exe crash
        * Windows hosts: VBoxSVC.exe memory leak due to a Windows WMI memory leak (Vista only)
        * Windows hosts: VBoxSVC.exe delays GUI startup
        * Linux hosts: handle jiffies counter overflow (VM stuck after 300 seconds of host uptime; bug #2247)
        * Solaris hosts: fixed host or guest side networking going stale while using host interface networking
        * Solaris hosts: added support for using unplumbed network interfaces and Crossbow Virtual Network Interfaces (VNICs) with host interface networking
        * Solaris hosts: reworked threading model improves performance for host interface networking
        * Windows additions: fixed crash when accessing deep directory structures in a shared folder
        * Windows additions: improved shared folder name resolving
        * Windows additions: fixed Windows 2000 shutdown crash
        * Windows additions: fixed error code for MoveFile() if the target exists
        * Linux additions: fixed seek() for files bigger than 2GB
        * Linux additions: support Ubuntu 8.10
        * Linux additions: clipboard fixes
