Oracle VirtualBox 7.0.12
VirtualBox 7.0.12 has been released.
I’ve installed it on my Windows 10 and 11 machines with no drama.
Releases of VirtualBox prompt me to check for new versions of Vagrant. The current version is Vagrant 2.4.0. All my test systems are built with Vagrant, so I installed it as well.
If you are new to Vagrant and want to learn, you might find this useful.
Once you understand that, I found the best way of learning more was to look at builds done by other people. You can see all my Vagrant builds here.
I’ll be doing some updates to my Oracle builds over the coming days, so this will get a lot of testing.
I use Packer to rebuild my Vagrant boxes (Oracle Linux 7, 8 and 9) so they have the latest guest additions. The current set of boxes were built using Packer 1.9.4. The new version of the boxes can be seen here.
If you are interested in creating your own Packer builds, you might take inspiration from mine, available here.
How did it all go?
The new versions of VirtualBox, Packer and Vagrant all did their jobs fine. 🙂
What about the VirtualBox GUI?
Just a quick warning. I do everything using Vagrant, so I rarely look at the VirtualBox GUI. Remember, when I say everything worked fine, I mean for what I use.
