VirtualBox 5.0 Release Candidate 3 released

Postby frank » 3. Jul 2015, 18:33

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 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 4.3.28.

VirtualBox 5.0 will be a new major release. Here is an incomplete list of changes since VirtualBox 5.0 Release Candidate 2:
  • VMM: fixed a problem with large pages in Hyper-V (see here)
  • VMM: when using the KVM PV provider, use the same frequency for all VCPUs. This will fix slow boots on certain hosts.
  • VMM: fixed a hang under certain conditions for SMP guests (32-bit hosts only)
  • VMM: several fixes
  • AHCI: fixed a crash during shutdown under rare conditions
  • AHCI: fixed crash as a result of I/O errors in certain conditions (bug #13105)
  • Audio: fixed a VM hang with the ALSA backend with certain ALSA configurations
  • VGA: fixed loading of saved state if 2D Video Acceleration is enabled (see here)
  • GUI: apply user interface settings from corresponding page only after pressing OK, not instantly on-the-fly (see here)
  • GUI: remember size-hints and enabled/disabled states for secondary guest-screens in multi-screen setups on VM restart
  • Drag and drop: various fixes for KDE-based guests
  • Drag and drop: added transferring plain text to Windows guests
  • Drag and drop: fixed transferring large files from host to Linux/Unix guests
  • Guest Control: several fixes
  • Mac OS X hosts: El Capitan fixes
  • Additions/Linux: added -s parameter to mount.vboxsf to be sloppy with invalid parameters (see here)

Addendum: Build 101470 fixes a regression on Mac OS X (not able to start VMs from the VM selector).
