When the BETA2?

Postby Lord_ZealoN » 26. May 2007, 09:49

Hi, in other post I asked for USB support and someody answered me thath in BETA2 will work correctly. He told me about the release of BETA2 in past weekend but at the moment, there aren't this BETA2 out.

Someone knows when BETA2 will be ready to download and test?

Cheers.

We're working on it, USB needs some more fixes and testing. Currently, the focus is on the upcoming 1.4 release so there is not much time for the Mac version these days.

Form June 7:

The Mac host is still beta. We plan to do a beta 2 next week (version 1.4.1) with USB support. The Mac will be part of the standard release cycle once it has left the beta test phase (i.e. when all features have been implemented).

So I guess that would mean a new beta would be out pretty soon. I hope that they saw my thread on a few fixes which contained some bug reports and feature suggestions.

I have parallels 2.5 which I already bought, but this one looks like it might eventually get better (and for free; it will remain free, right?).

I hope it comes out soon, as much as I love using VirtualBox I can't use it for anything productive since it can't do bridged networking yet.

That is the only thing I wish they would work on for OS X. I love the multiple snapshots, speed, etc., but that is the only thing killin it for me.

I so wish there was a way for me to help, but I am not much of a programmer, lol

By the time being, you can try "Hamachi VPN" to access your guests. Other types of VPN/Tunneling software should work as well.

Bridged networking won't be in Beta 2 unfortunately. Beta 2 is almost ready though, just some more USB testing. Sorry it is taking so long, we got sidetracked by other things and couldn't spend as much time on the Mac port as anticipated.

Happy to Hear About Beta 2

Glad to hear beta 2 is on the way. Keep up the good work.
I guess no one can really complain when it is free. :lol:

Thanks again for all the hard work.
PEACE!!

Just wanted to concur that bridged networking is the only thing holding me back from ditching Parallels at the moment. I need this for my daily use.

Other than that, Virtual Box is sooo much better than Parallels for me, just because of its superior performance (and the price helps).

VirtualBox is a major step onto open-source-virtualisation, but BootCamp-Support is still missing for me.

Later today I hope. We just discovered that the OS X 10.4.10 update breaks USB storage support but we will not further delay the release because of this.

Beta 2 has just been released (go to the download section). It will be announced later today (provided that no major regressions have slipped in). Feedback would be appreciated.

Hey Achima! Thanks for all the effort you guys are putting into this. Downloading now.

Finished downloading. Love the picture in the "About" window. But what is the symbol on the Tambourine? I think I've got all the others.
