VirtualBox, an open source x86 virtualization project available for free has just hit version 4.0.10. The new version, a 82.8 megabyte download, sports the following list of fixes and changes:
– GUI: fixed disappearing settings widgets on KDE hosts (bug #6809).
– Storage: fixed hang under rare circumstances with flat VMDK images.
– Storage: a saved VM could not be restored under certain circumstances after the host kernel was updated (bug #8983).
– Storage: refuse to create a medium with an invalid variant (for example Split2G with VDI; bug #7227).
– Snapshots: none of the hard disk attachments must be attached to another VM in normal mode when creating a snapshot.
– USB: fixed occasional VM hangs with SMP guests (bug #4580).
– USB: proper device detection on RHEL/OEL/CentOS 5 guests (partial fix for bug #8978).
– ACPI: force the ACPI timer to return monotonic values for improve behavior with SMP Linux guests (bug #8511 and others).
– RDP: fixed screen corruption under rare circumstances (bug #8977).
– rdesktop-vrdp: updated to version 1.7.0.
– OVF: under rare circumstances some data at the end of a VMDK file was not written during export.
– Lion fixes (bug #8903).
– GNOME 3 fix.
VirtualBox 4.0.10 is available for free and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and an Intel-based Mac to install and run.
