Oracle VM VirtualBox 6.0 Beta 3 released!

Simon Coter
Senior Manager, Oracle Linux and Virtualization Product Management

Oracle is proud to announce Oracle VM VirtualBox 6.0 Beta 3 release.

Here is an incomplete list of changes since Beta 2 release:

  • OCI integration: exporting a VM is now possible from the command line interface (VBoxManage)
  • OCI integration: all virtualized shapes are supported, e.g. VM.Standard2.*
  • Devices/graphics: enable support for VMSVGA graphics device emulation by default
  • VBoxManage: support for DHCP options
  • Windows guests: support VMSVGA in the Windows Additions

In addition, the following items have been fixed and/or added:

  • Serial: allow changing the serial port attachment while the VM is running (bug #6115)
  • Linux guests and hosts: support Linux Kernel 4.20 (thank you to Larry Finger)
  • Linux guests: support VMSVGA in the Linux and X11 Additions

Please do NOT use this VirtualBox Beta release on production machines.

A VirtualBox Beta release should be considered a bleeding-edge release meant for early evaluation and testing purposes.

Please do NOT open bug reports at http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Bugtracker but use our VirtualBox Beta Feedback forum to report any problems with the Beta. Please concentrate on reporting regressions since Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.2.

You can download the binaries here. Please use sha256sum to compare the hash of the downloaded package with the corresponding hash from this list.

For further details on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure integration, you can follow up on this blog article.

Feedback and comments are obviously appreciated.
