VirtualBox 5.2 Beta 2 released

Postby frank » 15. Aug 2017, 21:23

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 5.1.26.

VirtualBox 5.2 will be a new minor release. Here is an incomplete list of changes since version 5.2 Beta 1:
  • GUI: permanently save tools layout
  • GUI: don't allow to decrease the size of a medium as this is not implemented (see this posting)
  • Audio: fixed distortions when using the PulseAudio backend
  • Audio: fixed recording when using the ALSA backend
  • Storage: mark IDE0/IDE1 as initialized in the device emulation to repair EFI boot with ICH9 (see this posting)
  • Linux Additions: support RHEL 7.4 (see this posting)
  • Mac OS X hosts: fixed a GUI crash if Spotlight is used from file dialogs (5.1.20 regression; bugs 16935, 16593)
