VirtualBox 4.3 Release Candidate 1 released

Postby frank » 8. Oct 2013, 21:06

Please do NOT use this VirtualBox Release Candidate on production machines. A VirtualBox Release Candidate 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 4.2.18.

VirtualBox 4.3 will be a new major release. Here is an incomplete list of chances since VirtualBox 4.3 Beta 3:
  • GUI: use the number of physical cores for the recommendation for the maximum number of virtual CPUs
  • GUI: fixed crash during medium enumeration
  • GUI: NLS updates
  • Linux hosts: fixed udev rule priority on certain Linux distributions
  • 3D: fixed hang on X11 hosts with 3D enabled
  • 3D: Google Earth fixes for Windows guests running the WDDM driver
  • 3D seamless fixes
  • 3D: fixed Aero 3D rendering for Vista guests, see here.
  • 3D: fixed 3D isNewKey warning for Fedora guests, see here.
  • EFI: several fixes
  • ExtPack installer doesn't like funny characters in installation path
  • IDE/SATA: fix for newer Linux kernels not detecting a hard disk as SSD when using the IDE or SATA controller
  • IDE/SATA: Store the passthrough flag for CD/DVD drives even if there is no medium attached
  • Guest Control: several fixes
  • Clipboard: fixed a potential segfault when working with UTF8 and UTF16 text content (Mac OS X hosts only)
  • Linux hosts: fix for GUI not starting without specifying a password
  • Mac OS X hosts: limited support for Mavericks (we are aware of the kext signing warning)
  • Mac OS X guests: several fixes
  • Windows hosts: try to fix the nasty Cannot rename this connection problem during installation
  • Windows Additions: fixed memory leak with certain Windows guests
Thank you for testing!
