Postby frank » 17. Dec 2010, 18:24

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 3.2.12 / VirtualBox 4.0.0 Beta 3.

Note: As of version 4.0, VirtualBox introduces the Extension Pack mechanism which allows Oracle and 3rd parties to deliver additional functionality on top of the standard Open Source product. The Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack, adds support for USB 2.0, RDP server and the PXE bootloader with E1000 support.
You can download this Pack from the same location and install it via the VirtualBox Global Settings using the Extensions pane.

This is the third beta of the upcoming 4.0 release. The following items were added/fixed since VirtualBox 4.0.0 Beta 3:
  • Audio: fixed memory corruption under certain circumstances
  • 3D support: fixed OpenGL support for Windows 2000 guests
  • Settings: modifying VM session could lose disk attachments (4.0 Beta 3 regression)

  • ExtPacks: fixed installation on certain Linux hosts (e.g. openSUSE)
  • ExtPacks: require sudo for installation on Linux and Solaris hosts
  • Storage: fixed possible crash during suspend
  • Storage: fixed raw disk access on OS X
  • Storage: lower the CPU usage for low disk I/O bandwidth limits
  • Storage: added multi-attachment image mode for shared disk clusters
  • Storage: fixed SATA activity LED handling
  • 2D: fixed seamless mode when 2D is on for Mac hosts
