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 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 X.org servers with RandR 1.1
