VirtualBox 3.0.6 released

The latest update to VirtualBox, version 3.0.6, just got released. As mentioned before, this is good news for the Web Console project as it comes with several fixes and enhancements required for smooth operation.

Once you've updated to 3.0.6, check out the VirtualBox Web Console as described here. Within some minutes, you should be up and running. Still a lot of work to do but there are some useful features that you can enjoy today:

  • Browse your virtual machines and inspect their settings
  • Start virtual machines in headless mode
  • Pause/resume VMs
  • Save the state of running VMs
  • Terminate VMs (hard power off or ACPI)
  • Remote control your VMs using the integrated RDP Web Control
A lot of limitations still like no authentication for the RDP viewer. You will also find a Create VM wizard which is not fully done yet but gives you an idea of what to expect in the near future.

The VirtualBox Web Console is a community project and we are looking for contributors. In an earlier post I talked about the architecture and the mailing lists for developers and users.

  3. Hello! I am sure I am way too late for this question but - how are the chances to have a version of vboxweb that would use libvirt?

    Compatibility with other virtualisation platforms would be an absolute must-have for me...

  6. The project is not dead, the development is just a bit slow-downed. No, there will be no .deb available, at least not ini the near future.

  9. I am greatly enjoying the VBox on my new Imac, installed 2 months ago, and running market charting as well. My only problem has been to config a USB Canon Faxphone L170, for which the Canon driver is not compatible, and I find no other, even though the Canon IP1700, works fine thru a carp driver.

  13. No, it's not dead - just developing slowly as there are very few contributions and there's a shortage on manpower.
