Oracle releases VM VirtualBox update 3.2.10
Oracle has announced the arrival of version 3.2.10 of its open source VM VirtualBox desktop virtualisation application for x86 hardware. The maintenance update includes several bug fixes and a number of changes over the previous 3.2.8 release from early August, including various stability improvements.
VM VirtualBox 3.2.10 features performance improvements for virtual machines (VM) with more than 2 GB of RAM, the addition of a custom core dumper for Solaris hosts, designed to save more data should a VM crash and improved, less choppy audio playback. The developers have also added support for X.Org Server 1.9 and the ability to minimise a VM from the mini toolbar. Other changes include various 3D support and user interface updates, fixes for Linux 2.6.36 systems and an update for Mac OS X hosts that corrects a missing dock menu entries issue. The developers advise all users to upgrade.
More information about the update, including a full list of changes, can be found in the release announcement and in the change log. VM VirtualBox 3.2.10 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris. VirtualBox source code is released under version 2 of the GNU General Public Licence (GPLv2) while VirtualBox binaries are released under the VirtualBox Personal Use and Evaluation Licence (PUEL).
