Sun xVM VirtualBox 3.0.0 vydán

Neuběhl ani měsíc od vydání beta verze VirtualBoxu
 a už tu máme finální verzi VirtualBox 3.0.0.

Nové vlastnosti

  • Podpora až 32 virtuálních procesorů ve virtuálních strojích (pouze
    s technologií Intel VT-x/AMD-V)
  • Virtuální stroje s Windows: možnost spouštět aplikace používající
    Direct3D 8/9 nebo hry (experimentální funkce)
  • Podpora OpenGL 2.0 pro virtuální stroje s OS Windows, Linux nebo

Následující položky byly v tomto vydání přidány nebo opraveny

    OpenGL states

    compression formats
  • 3D support: fixed incorrect rendering of glDrawRangeElements
  • 3D support: fixed memory leak when using VBOs
  • 3D support: fixed glew library detection
  • 3D support: fixed random textures corruption

  • Networking: fixed another problem with TX checksum offloading with Linux
    kernels up to version 2.6.18
  • NAT: fixed “open ports on virtual router – 513, 514”
  • NAT: allow to configure socket and internal parameters
  • NAT: allow to bind sockets to specific interface
  • PXE boot: significant performance increase (VT-x/AMD-V only)
  • VHD: properly write empty sectors when cloning of VHD images
    (bug #4080)
  • VHD: fixed crash when discarding snapshots of a VHD image
  • VHD: fixed access beyond the block bitmap which could lead to arbitrary
  • VBoxManage: fixed incorrect partition table processing when creating VMDK
    files giving raw partition access (bug #3510)
  • VBoxManage: support cloning to existing image file
  • OVF: several OVF 1.0 compatibility fixes
  • OVF: fixed exporting of disk images when multiple virtual machines are
    exported at once
  • Virtual mouse device: eliminated micro-movements of the virtual mouse which
    were confusing some applications (bug #3782)
  • Shared Folders: sometimes a file was created using the wrong permissions
    (2.2.0 regression; bug #3785)
  • Shared Folders: allow to change file attributes from Linux guests and use
    the correct file mode when creating files
  • Shared Folders: some content was incorrectly written under certain
    conditions (bug #1187)
  • Shared Folders: fixed incorrect file timestamps, when using Windows guest
    on a Linux host (bug #3404)
  • X11 clipboard: fix duplicate end of lines (bug #4270)
  • X11 guests: a number of shared clipboard fixes
  • Linux guests: Guest Additions support for SUSE Linux Enterprise
    Desktop 11
  • Linux guests: new daemon vboxadd-service to handle time synchronization and
    guest property lookup
  • Linux guests: implemented guest properties (OS info, logged in users, basic
    network information)
  • Windows host installer: VirtualBox Python API can now be installed
    automatically (requires Python and Win32 Extensions installed)
  • USB: Support for high-speed isochronous endpoints has been added. In
    addition, read-ahead buffering is performed for input endpoints (currently Linux
    hosts only). This should allow additional devices to work, notably webcams
    (bug #242).
  • USB: fixed error handling for some USB dongles
  • Web service: fixed inability to handle NULL pointers for object arguments,
    which are valid values for a lot of APIs, in both the raw and the
    object-oriented web service.
  • Web service: object-oriented bindings for JAX-WS did not exhibit interface
    inheritance correctly, fixed
  • Web service: added support for IDisplay and IGuest interfaces, which were
