VirtualBox 4.2.18 Professional-quality Virtualization...

Some of the features of VirtualBox by Sun Microsystems are:

* Modularity. VirtualBox 4.2.18 has an extremely modular design with well-defined internal programming interfaces and a client/server design. This makes it easy to control it from several interfaces at once: for example, you can start a virtual machine in a typical virtual machine GUI and then control that machine from the command line, or possibly remotely. VirtualBox [virtualbox4.2.18.exe] also comes with a full Software Development Kit: even though it is Open Source Software, you don' t have to hack the source to write a new interface for VirtualBox - 38.09MB.

* Virtual machine descriptions in XML. The configuration settings of virtual machines are stored entirely in XML and are independent of the local machines. Virtual machine definitions can therefore easily be ported to other computers.

* Guest Additions for Windows and Linux. VirtualBox 4.2.18 has special software that can be installed inside Windows and Linux virtual machines to improve performance and make integration much more seamless. Among the features provided by these Guest Additions are mouse pointer integration and arbitrary screen solutions (e. g. by resizing the guest window).

* Shared folders. Like many other virtualization solutions, for easy data exchange between hosts and guests, VirtualBox allows for declaring certain host directories as " shared folders" , which can then be accessed from within virtual machines.

A number of extra features are available with the full VirtualBox release only (see the " Editions" page for details):

* Virtual USB Controllers. VirtualBox implements a virtual USB controller and allows you to connect arbitrary USB devices to your virtual machines without having to install device specific drivers on the host.

* Remote Desktop Protocol. Unlike any other virtualization software, VirtualBox fully supports the standard Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). A virtual machine can act as an RDP server, allowing you to " run" the virtual machine remotely on some thin client that merely displays the RDP data.

* USB over RDP. With this unique feature, a virtual machine that acts as an RDP server can still access arbitrary USB devices that are connected on the RDP client. This way, a powerful server machine can virtualize a lot of thin clients that merely need to display RDP data and have USB devices plugged in.
Presently, VirtualBox runs on Windows, Linux, Macintosh and OpenSolaris hosts and supports a large number of guest operating systems including but not limited to Windows (NT 4. 0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista), DOS/Windows 3. x, Linux (2. 4 and 2. 6), Solaris and OpenSolaris, and OpenBSD.

VirtualBox is being actively developed with frequent releases and has an ever growing list of features, supported guest operating systems and platforms it runs on. VirtualBox is a community effort backed by a dedicated company: everyone is encouraged to contribute while Sun ensures the product always meets professional quality criteria.

On this site, you can find sources, binaries, documentation and other resources for VirtualBox. If you are interested in VirtualBox (both as a user, or possibly as a contributor), this website is for you.

What is new in official VirtualBox 4.2.18 software version? - VMM: properly handle NMIs on Linux hosts with X2APIC enabled VMM: fixed potential crashes with 64-bit guests on 32-bit hosts (bug #11979) GUI / seamless: properly handle mouse wheel scroll events GUI, VBoxManage: when unregistering a VM, also unregister the hard disk images which are used exclusively (bug #10311) GUI: prevent crashes under certain conditions on X11 hosts 3D: multiscreen fixes (incorrect mouse position, flickers) 3D Support: several fixes for the Windows WDDM video driver (multiscreen, seamless) Snapshots: made live snapshots work again (bug #9255) Teleportation: made it work again (bug #9455) VBoxManage: on snapshot take, --pause is default and --live is for doing live snapshots VBoxSVC: don't crash on systems with many VLAN interfaces (Solaris hosts only) Network: after the host resumes from suspend, disconnect and reconnect the virtual network cables to force renewing the DHCP leases for the guests. So far only Mac OS X hosts and Windows hosts (bug #10063). NAT: on name server changes force a reconnect of the virtual network cable to notify the guest (Mac OS X hosts only) Mac OS X installer: keep previously installed Extension Packs on VirtualBox upgrade Linux hosts / guests: Linux 3.11 fixes (bug #12001) Solaris hosts: fixed a potential kernel panic caused due to unexpected preemption due to logging. Windows hosts: fixed an issue with USB2 devices being inaccessible when plugged into USB3 ports. Linux Additions: added PCI device identifier to vboxvideo.ko fixing DRI initialization under certain conditions (bug #11957) Linux Additions: fixed udev detection in the init script with Linux 3.x kernels . What is expected in the future? Newly-made VirtualBox 4.3 be downloaded from current page, we also looking forward to unconfirmed 4.4 release build. You may download VirtualBox-4.1.8-75467-Win.exe directly, estimated download time by ADSL2+ [~24.5 Mbit/s] is 0:00:13. Just write the reviews of the VirtualBox. System requirements are unspecified. Program has been scanned and verified by the several antivirus and anti-spyware applications and VirtualBox found to be clean. New guides and VirtualBox tutorials are easy to follow and give you the knowledge to use VirtualBox 4.2.18 software. The following languages are supported by VirtualBox: English.
