*VirtualBox 6.0.x is supported!

On this page: (6.0 download page. Can't post urls first post...) it states "VirtualBox 6.0.x is no longer supported!" in red letters. I'm assuming this is some kind of carryover formatting error related to the "VirtualBox 5.2.x is no longer supported!" dialogue on (5.2 download page)

Probably an easy fix. Have a great day! :D

I'm guessing you're referring to

That's not a formatting error: 6.0 is truly no longer supported.

Not being supported merely means no further versions will be released and no bugs will be fixed. The unsupported versions still work just fine if they used to work just fine . My production host still runs 6.0.14, and my old Windows 7 media server has 5.2.something on it.

The big change from 6.0 to 6.1 was the removal of non-hardware-vitualization-technology operation (VT-x/AMD-V). Formerly, host computers without this feature could run one-processor 32-bit VMs. From 6.1 onward all VMs require active VT-x/AMD-V. Fortunately, most if not all of the new computers of the last decade have VT-x/AMD-V, so this change does not cause trouble for the vast majority of users. 6.0 & earlier can still be run on the older computers.
