VirtualBox 5.0.10 has been born.
There has been a bit of a discussion on Twitter today about the pros and cons of upgrading VirtualBox. I run VirtualBox on Windows 7 at work and Linux and Mac at home. Unless I’m travelling, I pretty much upgrade straight away. In recent history I only remember one time a patch has caused me problems and forced me to back it out. It seems other people on Twitter have had more issues than me.
I made the jump from VirtualBox 4 to 5 immediately and haven’t suffered at all.
If you are having issues, VirtualBox has a public bugtracker where you should log your problems. If you don’t tell them about your problems, they can only assume you aren’t having them. 🙂
