VirtualBox 5.0.20 released with Linux Kernel 4.5 fixes

VirtualBox 5.0.20 released today, a maintenance release of VirtualBox 5.0 which improves stability and fixes regressions. Note that this release does not contain fixes for the X11 Guest Additions so users affected by 5.0.18 regressions with X.org Linux guests should continue to use the 5.0.16 Guest Additions for the time being. These regressions will be handled with the next 5.0.x maintenance release.

The main reason for this quick update are the 5.0.18 VERR_MORE_DATA regression with the LsiLogic SCSI controller and fixes for recent Windows insider builds.VirtualBox 01

VirtualBox 5.0.20 changelog

  • Storage: fixed a regression causing write requests from the BIOS to cause a Guru Meditation with the LsiLogic SCSI controller
  • Storage: several emulation fixes in the BusLogic SCSI controller emulation
  • NAT Network: support TCP in DNS proxy
  • NAT: rework handling of port-forwarding rules
  • NAT: rewrite host resolver to handle more query types and make it asynchronous so that a stalled lookup doesn’t block all NAT traffic
  • Snapshots: don’t crash when restoring a snapshot which has more network adapters than the current state (ie when the snapshot uses ICH9 and the current state uses PIIX3)
  • Guest Control: various bugfixes for the copyfrom and copyto commands / API
  • VBoxManage: list processor features on list hostinfo
  • Linux hosts: fix for Linux 4.5 if CONFIG_NET_CLS_ACT is enabled
  • Windows hosts: another fix for recent Windows 10 insider builds
  • Windows hosts: make it work on Windows XP again (5.0.18 regression)
  • Windows Additions: fixed performance issues with PowerPoint 2010 and the WDDM graphics drivers if Aero is disabled
