A call for testing has gone out for VirtualBox 4.0.4. The latest version in ports is 3.2.12 (/usr/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose) so it’s nice a number of devs working to get this port updated. 4.0.4 is the most recent stable version, released on 17 Feb.
A few of you have probably wondered what happened to our VirtualBox efforts for FreeBSD. Well it took a bit longer then expected and a few problems were found that needed to be resolved first but most of the things are looking fine now and almost all patches have been pushed upstream with 4.0.4 so here we are now.
We will continue to work on VirtualBox for FreeBSD and upstream is also very helpful to us but we could need a few more hands to better keep up with the work and especially improve and fix the Guest Additions. So if you want to help please contact us or have a look at our Todo list.
If you have a spare PC, please let the devs have your feedback.
