VirtualBox 5.0.14

I’ve not done the installation on Linux yet, but it installed and seems to work fine on Windows 7 and Mac OS X (El Crapitan).

VirtualBox 5.0.12

I was just going to update one of my seldom used servers to VirtualBox to 5.0.10, when I noticed Santa brought 5.0.12 as an early Christmas present yesterday! :)

VirtualBox 5.0.12 is a maintenance release with a bunch of fixes and additions. The downloads and changelog are in the usual places!

VirtualBox 5.0.10

VirtualBox 5.0.10 has been born.

Downloads and changelog in the usual places.

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.

VirtualBox 5.0.8

VirtualBox 5.0.8 has been released.

Happy upgrading, especially applying all those new versions of the guest additions. :)

VirtualBox, Oracle 12c and Macs

Just a quick comment about something I noticed while rebuilding a test VM on my Mac. There is a long lead up to this, so bear with me…

Background

I use VirtualBox on three different host operating systems.

Mac : My main desktop is a Mac, so most of my tests are done using Oracle 12c on Oracle Linux 6 or 7, running under VirtualBox. Most of the VMs I use are quite old, but I keep the DB and OS patched, and you know I religiously update VirtualBox. :) The point is, I rarely do fresh installations on Mac.
