VirtualBox 4.1.6 (released 2011-11-04)

This is a maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added:
  • VRDP: fixed screen corruption
  • NAT: the interface stopped working after a lot of failed ICMP requests (bug #9371)
  • E1000: fixed rare Windows 7 guest hangs, either at boot time or when reconfiguring the network card in unusual setups (bug #6223)
  • ATA: fixed a possible crash during ATAPI passthrough with certain guests
  • ATA: improved compatibility with ancient Linux kernels
  • Main: fixed incorrect framebuffer information after leaving the fullscreen mode with X11 guests, this lead to a scrambled preview window in the GUI for example
  • Mac OS X hosts: fixed the problem with duplicate packets when bridged to a wireless interface (bug #9648)
  • Linux hosts: fix for 3D support on Fedora 15 (bug #9799)
  • Linux hosts: don't call del_timer_sync from an interrupt context (Fedora bug report 746331)
  • Windows Vista and 7 guests: more WDDM fixes
  • Linux Additions: fixed kernel module compilation failure on Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 (bug #9709)
  • Linux Additions: install the DRI driver correctly on Ubuntu 11.10 guests
  • Solaris Additions: added read-only mmap support for shared folders
  • Solaris Additions: added directory, file mode and mask options for shared folders
  • Windows Additions: implemented faster detection of logged-in guest users and stale sessions
  • X.Org Additions: fixed graphical corruption when switching to a virtual terminal (bug #9490)

Good tool for messing around with OS that you don't want directly accessing your hardware like Ubuntu.

When is VirtualBox going to get drag-and-drop between the host and guest? This is one feature I really miss from VMware Workstation.

About the same time as when Chrome gets tab overflow. :rolleyes:
