虛擬系統軟體VirtualBox 2.2.0 正式版

VirtualBox 2.2.0正式版
來源: Linux論壇  日期: 2009.04.09 09:33
最早是德國一家軟體公司InnoTek所開發的虛擬系統軟體,後來被Sun收購,改名為Sun VirtualBox,性能有很大的提高.因為他是開源的,不同於VM,而且功能強大,可以在 Linux/Mac Windows 主機中運行,並 支援在其中安裝 Windows (NT 4.02000XPServer 2003Vista)DOS/Windows 3.xLinux (2.4 2.6)OpenBSD 等系列的客戶作業系統.假如你曾經有用過虛擬機軟體的經歷的話,相信使用 VirtualBox 不在話下。即便你是一個新手,也沒有關係。VirtualBox 提供了詳細的文檔,可以助你在短期內入門。

The screenshots below show several impressions while running VirtualBox 1.5 on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and Solaris platforms:

VirtualBox for Mac OS X. One virtual machine is running in seamless mode on Leopard. Note the realtime preview of the virtual machine in the dock.
VirtualBox for Mac OS X, currently in beta test. Two virtual machines are visible: one with Windows Vista, another with Gentoo Linux.
Creating a new, empty VM for installing Windows Vista.
The new VM in the VirtualBox main window. Note that an ISO file (containing the Vista setup CD) has been mounted as the VM's CD-ROM drive.
After starting the VM, it boots off the virtual CD-ROM (the ISO file with the Vista setup), and Vista Setup starts up.
Vista is installing into the virtual hard drive.
Vista install complete: the log-on screen.
Compiling VirtualBox on Ubuntu Edgy Eft in VirtualBox on Windows XP.
Details of a snapshot performed after Vista installation. We can revert the virtual machine to this snapshot at a later time.
Damn Small Linux 2.0 works damn well in VirtualBox!
The Virtual Disk Manager allows you to work with VM images.
VirtualBox in Vista inside VirtualBox on XP? Perhaps some day...
A community-based effort is underway to port VirtualBox to OS/2 hosts. This screenshot shows a first alpha version.


VirtualBox 2.2.0 (released 2009-08-04)

This version is a major update. The following major new features were added:

* OVF (Open Virtualization Format) appliance import and export (see chapter 3.8, Importing and exporting virtual machines, User Manual page 55)
* Host-only networking mode (see chapter 6.7, Host-only networking, User Manual page 88)
* Hypervisor optimizations with significant performance gains for high context switching rates
* Raised the memory limit for VMs on 64-bit hosts to 16GB
* VT-x/AMD-V are enabled by default for newly created virtual machines
* USB (OHCI & EHCI) is enabled by default for newly created virtual machines (Qt GUI only)
* Experimental USB support for OpenSolaris hosts
* Shared folders for Solaris and OpenSolaris guests
* OpenGL 3D acceleration for Linux and Solaris guests (see chapter 4.8, Hardware 3D acceleration (OpenGL), User Manual page 70)
* Added C API in addition to C++, Java, Python and Web Services

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

* VMM: FreeBSD guest related fix for V86 flags (bug #2342)
* VMM: fixed guru meditation when booting an AsteriskNow Linux VM (bug #2342)
* VMM: fixed PGMPOOLKIND_FREE guru meditation (bugs #3356, #3431)
* VMM: fixed Windows XP boot hang (guest PAE + nested paging only)
* VMM: allow mixing of VT-x/AMD-V and software virtualization
* VMM: fixed extremely slow safe mode booting in e.g. Windows 2008 (VT-x/AMD-V only)
* VMM: significant speedup of certain GRUB boot loaders (e.g. Solaris) (VT-x/AMD-V only)
* VMM: real-mode IOPL fix for DOS guests (VT-x only)
* VMM: fixed VT-x detection with certain BIOSes that enable VT-x, but don’t set the lock bit in MSR_IA32_FEATURE_CONTROL
* VMM: fixed hibernation issues on Windows XP hosts (VT-x only; bug #1794)
* VMM: properly emulate RDMSR from the TSC MSR, should fix some NetBSD guests
* VMM: emulate RDPMC; fixes Windows guests crashes when using the Kaspersky virus scanner (bug #1778)
* NAT: fixed truncated downloads (FTP) (bug #3257)
* NAT: blocked UDP packets caused a crash (bug #3426)
* NAT: allow to configure the next server and the boot file via VBoxManage (bug #2759)
* IDE: fixed hard disk upgrade from XML-1.2 settings (bug #1518)
* Hard disk: support more VMDK file variants (including fixed-size ESX server images)
* Hard disks: refuse to start the VM if a disk image is not writable
* USB: further reduced host CPU utilization for OHCI and EHCI; the “VBoxInternal/Devices/usb-ohci/0/Config/FrameRate” CFG key is no longer necessary and no longer supported
* USB: fixed BSOD on the host with certain USB devices (Windows hosts only; bug #1654)
* E1000: properly handle cable disconnects (bug #3421)
* VRDP: fixed hangs when VRDP server is enabled or disabled in runtime
* Shared folders: respect umask settings on Linux, OSX and Solaris hosts when creating files
* X11 guests: prevented setting the locale in vboxmouse, as this caused problems with Turkish locales (bug #3563)
* X11 guests: show the guest mouse pointer at the right position if the virtual desktop is larger than the guest resolution (bug #2306)
* Linux additions: fixed typo when detecting Xorg 1.6 (bug #3555)
* Solaris guests: added xpg4/xcu4 dependency to the guest additions installer (bug #3524)
* Windows guests: bind the VBoxMouse.sys filter driver to the correct guest pointing device (bug #1324)
* Windows hosts: fixed BSOD when starting a VM with enabled host interface (bug #3414)
* Linux hosts: do proper reference counting to prevent unloading the vboxnetflt module as long as this code is in use (bug #3104)
* Linux hosts: do not leave zombies of VBoxSysInfo.sh (bug #3586)
* Linux installers: fixes for Slackware, Arch Linux and Linux from Scratch systems
* Windows installers: combined installer executable which contains both (32- and 64-bit) architectures.
* VBoxManage: less cryptic command-line error messages
* VBoxManage list vms commands now default to compact format
* VBoxManage controlvm dvdattach did not work if the image was attached before
* VBoxManage: allow creation of all supported disk image variants
* VBoxManage showvminfo: don’t spam the release log if the additions don’t support statistics information (bug #3457)
* VBoxManage: big command line processing cleanup, the legacy single-dash options are deprecated and will be removed in the next major release, so switch to the new options now
* Hard disks: improved immutable disk support to auto-reset diff file at VM startup (related to bug #2772)
* GUI: enable the audio adapter by default for new VMs
* GUI: warn if VT-x/AMD-V is not operational when starting a 64-bit guest
