VirtualBox 4.3 Beta 1

VirtualBox è un software di virtualizzazione distribuito secondo i termini della GNU General Public License, per architettura x86 che supporta Windows, GNU/Linux e Mac OS X come sistemi operativi host, ed è in grado di eseguire Windows, GNU/Linux, OS/2 Warp, OpenBSD e FreeBSD come sistemi operativi guest.

Note di rilascio:

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 VirtualBox 4.2.16.

VirtualBox 4.3 will be a new major release. The following major new features were added:

VMM: major rewrite of the VT-x code including many bug fixes and performance improvements (for example bug #9659)
GUI: keyboard shortcuts management (input page of global preferences extended with possibility to edit general keyboard shortcuts for VirtualBox Manager and Virtual Machine)
GUI: extended messaging mechanism (new non-modal popup overlays used to show non-critical warnings and provide user with additional information)
GUI: video capturing support (bug #4766)
GUI: host touch devices support (GUI passes host touch-events to guest)
Emulated USB touch devices
VRDP: support for IPv6
NAT: experimental virtual router mode: several VMs are attached to the same internal network and share one NAT service (see the manual for more information)

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

VMM: properly handle NMIs on Linux hosts with X2APIC enabled
GUI: update check uses https
GUI: lot of internal stuff rewritten (cleanup and bug-fixes)
Settings: global and per-VM default frontend configuration, useful to select the use of alternative VM frontends
Settings: limit depth of snapshot tree to 250 levels, as more will lead to decreased performance and may trigger crashes

Main: use the XDG standard configuration folder instead of .VirtualBox on systems where it is appropriate (bug #5099)
