VirtualBox 5.0 Release Candidate 1 released

Postby frank » 1. Jun 2015, 23:11

Please do NOT use this VirtualBox Release Candidate release 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 4.3.28.

VirtualBox 5.0 will be a new major release. Here is an incomplete list of changes since VirtualBox 5.0 Beta 4:
  • GUI: NLS fixes. NLS strings are now frozen.
  • GUI: Improved HiDPI support for Windows host, icons/size-hint adjustments.
  • GUI: Use fast scaling mechanism for integer scale-factors (s. a. here).
  • Separate UI/VM: fixed completely broken re-attaching to a headless VM.
  • Drag and drop: fixed hang when reporting host errors such as inaccessible (locked) files.
  • PCNet: OpenStep fix (bug #10545)
  • Host-only networking: an attempt to fix some VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND problems
  • NAT: Don't forcibly reset/drop all connections when link goes down
  • AHCI: fixed a possible hang during VM shutdown
  • Audio: fix audio output if the default output device changes, before this fix it would always stream to the output device being the default when the VM was started
  • VBoxSVC: don't keep the support driver permanently open
  • VBoxManage addencpassword: read the command line from the console or from a file
  • vbox-img: added resize command
  • X11 Additions: fix for servers with RandR 1.1
