VirtualBox Console 

 

But the same virtualization engine that powers VirtualBox can be put to work in other ways too.

Sun just released a Press Release and accompanying Podcast about a few partners who have taken the technology and built upon it to deliver some innovative solutions.

Seems like the compact, efficient and modular architecture of VirtualBox coupled with the APIs available make it an ideal starting point for people wanting to innovate by using virtualization in different ways. And if partners want to know more they can email

Sun xVM VirtualBox 1.6.4 now available!

A wise Superhero once said something along the lines of: "With great power comes great responsibility" and we, in the VirtualBox team, never disagree with Superheroes.

So when we were informed by the guys at CoreLabs of a security vulnerability on the Windows platform we took it very seriously indeed. And the result is a new maintenance release which fixes the security problem and several other niggly bugs. 

This new version (Sun xVM VirtualBox 1.6.4) is available from the usual place  and the ChangeLog contains fuller details of the bugs fixed in this release.
