What's New with Oracle VM Windows PV Driver release 3.4.5?

The Oracle VM Windows PV Driver release 3.4.5 offers both new features and cumulative bug fixes since the previous 3.4.4 release. The notable enhancements with this release include:

  1. New guest Operating System support: Support has been added for Microsoft Windows Server 2019 as a guest Operating System in Oracle VM.

This release of the Oracle VM Windows PV Driver replaces the previous 3.4.4 release. The 3.4.5 release is fully supported with Microsoft Windows guest Virtual Machiness in Oracle VM release 3.4.6.
