VirtualBox 5.0.10 released with added basic support for X.Org Server 1.18. Virtualbox is a cross-platform virtualization application that installs on your Intel or AMD-based computers, and runs on Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. It extends the capabilities of your computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time.

  • VMM: improved support for certain Intel Atom CPUs
  • VMM: system register emulation fix
  • GUI: fixed immediate screenshot issue
  • GUI: fixed another 3D overlay window reparenting issue when the VM is switched to fullscreen mode on X11 hosts
  • GUI: fixed help index
  • GUI: fixed state synchronization issue in the VM manager window when VM was paused from its runtime window
  • Audio: fixed suspending/resuming audio streams on VM pause/unpause
