VirtualBox 2.2.0 Now Available
By pelegri on Apr 19, 2009
Sun released VirtualBox 2.2.0 on the 8th, two weeks ago and I started playing with it right then but only now I've had the time to write an entry now. This is a major release that includes support for OVF and performance and usability improvements; full details are available in the ChangeLog. This release has had Extensive Coverage; check out Andy's Overview and his Radio Show on the topic (Slides).
VirtualBox is gaining adoption very fast - check the Google Trends (archive). VBox claims 11M d/ls, with more than 25K/day (somewhat less than GF) and 3.5M registrations (that's outstanding). VBox 2.2 is only 50MB and easy to get started, so download it and take it for a test drive.
I'm trying to arrange a presentation for our GlassFish TV Webinars where we can explore the synergies between the projects; in the meantime see the VBox Documentation Wiki, the User Manual and many Blogs at BSC, including this Advanced Set from VirtualGuru.
