Oracle releases VirtualBox 4.0

When it comes to freely available virtualization software, VirtualBox hasn’t always been very appreciated, but it is a more than capable platform on which to run virtual machines across a variety of host platforms, including those running Windows, Linux, Solaris and even Mac OS X.  Version 4.0 includes a number of new features and capabilities, including:

  • Support more than 2 GB guest RAM on 32-bit hosts
  • Brand new interface which is now called the “VirtualBox Manager”
  • Improvements to Open Virtualization Format (OVF) including enhanced import and export performance and Open Virtualization Format Archive (OVA) support
  • Inside supported guests, support for multiple virtual screens in Linux and Solaris guests using X.Org server 1.3+
  • New support for guest CPU time and IO bandwidth limits

For a complete list of changes in VirtualBox 4.0, read the changelog.
