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 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 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!
