VirtualBox Adds Support for Linux Kernel 5.3, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1 Beta

Oracle released today VirtualBox 6.0.14, a new maintenance update in the latest VirtualBox 6.0 series of their open-source and cross-platform virtualization software.

On top of that, VirtualBox 6.0.14 improves the detection of the Python version during the creation of the RPM package on Linux hosts to address some installation issues addresses and package dependencies, and improves shared folders for Linux guests, especially when unmounting them in service script.

USB, audio, networking, and 3D fixes

VirtualBox 6.0.14 also brings various improvements and bug fixes for all supported platforms, including better support for systems with many processors, better support for some Intel hosts, better support for macOS 10.15 Catalina hosts, and compatibility with more guests running ALSA setups with the AC’97 emulation.

Some flicker and redraw issues, as well as crashes with some applications were fixed in the 3D area when using either the VBoxSVGA or VMSVGA graphics adapters, a potential issue that may interrupt signalling for network adapters in UEFI guests was addressed as well, and device capturing for passthrough was made more reliable and accurate and reliable on Windows hosts.
