VirtualBox 4.1 Beta 3 released

Postby frank » 14. Jul 2011, 22:49

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 http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Bugtracker but use our VirtualBox Beta Feedback forum to report any problems with the Beta. Please concentrate on reporting regressions since VirtualBox 4.0.10 / VirtualBox 4.1 Beta 2.

The following items were fixed / added since the VirtualBox 4.1 Beta 2:
  • GUI: reworked media type change dialog
  • GUI: when cloning or importing a VM, let the user decide if he wants to change the MAC addresses of the network adapters
  • GUI: allow to change generic networking properties during runtime
  • GUI: allow to configure the port count of SATA controllers (required for SATA hotplugging)
  • Cloning: allow linked cloning (see VBoxManage clonevm, GUI support will follow)
  • Cloning: rename the disks in the clone
  • PCI passthrough: allow to start the VM if the ICH9 chipset is enabled and the extension pack is not available (Beta 2 regression)
  • VBoxManage: more convenient configuration of storage controller attachments by automatically determining the port or device parameter when a storage controller has only one port or device per port
  • VBoxManage guestcontrol fixes
  • Storage: fixed access to CD/DVD images beyond 4GB when using the SATA controller (bug #8592)
  • Networking: fixed the problem with segmentation offloading when several VMs are transmitting in parallel
  • WDDM fixes
  • Mac OS X hosts: fix for non-VT-x mode on Lion
  • Solaris hosts: fixed for recent S11 versions
