VirtualBox 4.3 Beta 2 released

Postby Frank Mehnert » 9. Sep 2013, 22:53

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 4.2.18.

VirtualBox 4.3 will be a new major release. Here is an incomplete list of chances since VirtualBox 4.3 Beta 1:
  • VMM: fixed several regressions; fixed accessing certain MSRs (Intel and AMD)
  • VMM: fixed 64-bit guests on 32-bit hosts including fixes for host crashes under certain conditions (see 11979).
  • VMM: fixed panics on Mac OS X, see here
  • VMM: allow to use VT-x in SMX mode
  • GUI: more settings validation fixes
  • GUI: medium enumeration overhaul to speed up opening the settings dialog
  • GUI: fixed crashes under certain conditions on X11 hosts
  • Main: extension pack framework can now support loading HGCM modules, contributed by Jeff Westphal
  • Settings: the exclusive HW virtualization setting is now global, not per-VM as before
  • NAT: fixed port-forwarding
  • NAT: binding IPv4 connectivity to specified interface (global extradata "NAT/<network-name>/SourceIp4" ipv4)
  • NAT: DHCP reports list of DNS servers (w/o loopback mapping)
  • USB: detect USB2 devices on USB3 ports (Windows hosts only)
  • OVF: fixed import regression with double OHCI controller
  • 3D: fixed 3D-related crashes and Windows 8.1 rendering issues on OSX hosts
  • 3D: fixed Ubuntu 13.04 3D desktop rendering issues
  • Solaris hosts: dropped 32-bit support
  • Windows Additions: several autoresize and seamless fixes
  • Windows Additions: updated Wine sources
  • Windows Additions: fixed NT4 regression, see here

Thank you for testing!
