Sun xVM VirtualBox 2.1.2 is released!
By Fat Bloke on Jan 22, 2009
Good News! There's a new version of VirtualBox available now.
Version 2.1.2 is a maintenance release fixing issues with 2.1 which was released in December.
Some issues concerned Windows 7, but now that they are resolved we're happy to announce that VirtualBox supports Windows 7 as a guest AND as a host. An issue with shared folders has been fixed and the more observant may spot that it boots faster too.
And if you run a lot of vm's on your host you may be please to know that we raised the maximum number of concurrent guests from 127 to 1023. You'll need quite a machine to test that though
So if you have had problems with:
- 64-bit guests
- Networking on Windows
- USB on Linux
- Windows 7 Shared Folders
P.S. To prove that Shared Folders is working, see the movie about Host Guest Integration just released:
