VirtualBox 4.1 Beta 1 is now available for testing

The first beta release of VirtualBox 4.1 is now available for download and testing. You can find binaries for your host platform at http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.1.0_BETA1. This release contains several new features which may not be quite complete. Please do not use this on any production systems - it is only for early evaluation and testing.

VirtualBox 4.1 will be a new major release and includes the following new features.

  • Support for cloning virtual machines
  • Enhanced wizard for creating new virtual disks
  • A new wizard for copying virtual disks
  • Increased the guest memory limit for 64-bit hosts to 1TB
  • Experimental WDDM graphics driver for Windows guests
  • Modules and features in the guest additions now are represented as facilities to have a common interface for frontends.
  • A new networking mode (UDP tunnel) which will allow easy and transparent communication between guests running on different hosts
In addition to the new features, many bugs in the existing release have been fixed. Please see the VirtualBox 4.1 Beta 1 Announcement for a complete list.

Please report any problems with the beta release at the VirtualBox Beta Forum. The development team is particularly interested in problems or regressions since the last release (4.0.10).

A big thanks to Frank Mehnert for the heads up on this new Beta release.
