VirtualBox 5.1 Beta 2 released

Postby frank » 7. Jun 2016, 08:09

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 use sha256sum to compare the hash of the downloaded package with the corresponding hash from this list.

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 5.0.20.

VirtualBox 5.1 will be a new minor release. Here is an incomplete list of changes since version 5.1 Beta 1:
  • GUI: don't crash when showing the Beta popup message window
  • GUI: multi-screen full-screen layout fixed for Windows host (Qt5 regression)
  • GUI: don't allow to start subsequent separate VM instances
  • SDK: reduced memory usage in the webservice Java bindings
  • Settings: fixed regression with disabling audio
  • Settings: fixed regression with saving snapshots (only .vbox file is corrupted needing manual repair, disk images are intact; 5.1 Beta 1 regression)
  • Linux installer: Several path fixes for deb/rpm packages for older Linux distributions where we ship our own Qt5 libraries, see here.
  • Solaris Additions: added support for 1.18
