Finalmente è uscita la major update del prodotto di virtualizzazione per desktop di Oracle, VirtualBox 3.2.

Nella nuova release troviamo nuove funzionalità e bugfix che affliggevano la precedente versione.

Da adesso VirtualBox prende ufficialmente  il nome di Oracle VM VirtualBox (come saprete SUN è stata acquisita da Oracle il 20 aprile 2009)

Vediamo cosa c’è di nuovo (changelog):

  • Experimental support for Mac OS X guests
  • Memory ballooning to dynamically in- or decrease the amount of RAM used by a VM (64-bit hosts only)
  • Page Fusion automatically de-duplicates RAM when running similar VMs thereby increasing capacity. Currently supported for Windows guests on 64-bit hosts
  • CPU hot-plugging for Linux (hot-add and hot-remove) and certain Windows guests (hot-add only)
  • New Hypervisor features: with both VT-x/AMD-V on 64-bit hosts, using large pages can improve performance; also, on VT-x, unrestricted guest execution is now supported (if nested paging is enabled with VT-x, real mode and protected mode without paging code runs faster, which mainly speeds up guest OS booting)
  • Support for deleting snapshots while the VM is running
  • Support for multi-monitor guest setups in the GUI for Windows guests
  • USB tablet/keyboard emulation for improved user experience if no Guest Additions are available
  • LsiLogic SAS controller emulation
  • RDP video acceleration
  • NAT engine configuration via API and VBoxManage
  • Use of host I/O cache is now configurable
  • Guest Additions: added support for executing guest applications from the host system (replaces the automatic system presimparation feature)
  • OVF: enhanced OVF support with custom namespace to preserve settings that are not part of the base OVF standard

Bugfix Risolti

  • VMM: fixed Windows 2000 guest crash when configured with a large amount of RAM
  • Linux/Solaris guests: PAM module for automatic logons added
  • GUI: guess the OS type from the OS name when creating a new VM
  • GUI: added VM setting for passing the time in UTC instead of passing the local host time to the guest
  • GUI: fixed seamless mode on secondary monitors
  • GUI: offer to download the user manual in the OSE version
  • Main: allow to start a VM even if a virtual DVD or floppy medium is not accessible
  • Settings: be more robust when saving the XML settings files
  • Mac OS X: rewrite of the CoreAudio driver and added support for audio input
  • Mac OS X: external VRDP authentication module support
  • Mac OS X: Moved the realtime dock preview settings to the VM settings (no global option anymore). Use the dock menu to configure it.
  • Mac OS X: added the VM menu to the dock menu
  • 3D support: fixed corrupted surface rendering
  • 3D support: fixed VM crashes when using ARB_IMAGING
  • 3D support: fixed assertion when guest applications uses several windows with single OpenGL context
  • 3D support: added GL_ARB_pixel_buffer_object support
  • 3D support: added OpenGL 2.1 support
  • 3D support: fixed Final frame of Compiz animation not updated to the screen (Mac OS X only)
  • 3D support: fixed blank screen after loading snapshot of VM with enabled Compiz
  • Added support for virtual high precision event timer (HPET)
  • OVF: fixed mapping between two IDE channels in OVF and the one IDE controller in VirtualBox
  • OVF: fix VMDK format string identifiers and sort XML elements from rasd: namespace alphabetically as prescribed by standard
  • VBoxShell: interactive Python shell extended to be fully functional TUI for VirtualBox
  • Linux Additions: support Fedora 13
  • VBoxManage: fixed overly strict checks when creating a raw partition VMDK
