VirtualBox 6.0 Release Candidate 1 released

Post by michael »

Please do NOT use this VirtualBox release candidate on production machines. A VirtualBox release candidate should be used 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 5.2.

VirtualBox 6.0 will be a new major release. Here is an incomplete list of changes since Beta 3:
  • Audio: added support for surround speaker setups (e.g. used by Windows 10 Build 1809)
  • Storage: added utility vboximg-mount on OS X to access the content of disk images on the host.
  • Documentation: complete rewrite.
In addition, the following items were fixed and/or added:
  • Linux Additions: fix for building vboxvideo on EL 7.6 standard kernel, contributed by Robert Conde (bug #18093)
  • Shared folders: performance improvements
