Please do NOT use this VirtualBox Beta release on production machines. A VirtualBox Beta release should be considered a bleeding-edge release meant for early evaluation and testing purposes.

You can download the binaries here.

Please do NOT open bug reports at but use our VirtualBox Beta Feedback forum to report any problems with the Beta. Please concentrate on reporting regressions since VirtualBox 3.1.6 / 3.2.0 Beta 1.

This is the second Beta of the upcoming new major release of VirtualBox. The following items were fixed and/or added since 3.2.0 Beta 1:
