VirtualBox 4.3.28

virtualboxI know you’ve all been thinking, “It’s about time there was a new release of VirtualBox so I can reinstall the guest additions on all my VMs!” If so, it’s your lucky day!

VirtualBox 4.3.28 was released yesterday. The changelog and downloads are in the usual places.

Version 5.0 is on Beta 3, so it probably won’t be long before you can get your upgrading fix again… :)

VirtualBox 4.3.24

VirtualBox 4.3.24 has been released. Downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

Regarding the upgrades:

  • Fedora 21 : No problems.
  • Mac OS X Yosemite : No problems.
  • Windows 7 : I had to use the task manager to kill the “VBoxNetDHCP.exe” and “VBoxSVC.exe” processes from the current installation before the upgrade could continue. Once those were killed, it installed and worked fine.

Happy upgrading!

Cheers

VirtualBox 4.3.16

virtualboxVirtualBox 4.3.16 has arrived. The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

Although 4.3.14 worked fine on OS X and Linux, I skipped it on Windows because it just wouldn’t start a VM. That issue is allegedly fixed in this release. The changelog includes the following entry.

Windows hosts: fixed startup problems on certain Windows hosts due to conflicts with anti-virus software (4.3.14 regression, bug #13187)”

Happy days! :)

Update: It is working fine on Windows 7 at work…

VirtualBox 4.3.10

VirtualBox 4.3.10 has been released. The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

At the time of writing, the link to the Windows version seems to be broken, but the Mac, Oracle Linux and Fedora versions are there.

Happy upgrading!

Cheers

Update: Probably best to wait a while before downloading this new version. This version is currently on its 3rd build since I first downloaded it and now the download links are broken. :(
