Virtualbox v5.1.0.108711 | 114.6 Mb

VirtualBox is an application installed on an existing host operating system; within this application, additional operating systems can be loaded and run, each with its own virtual environment. For example, several Linux distributions can be hosted on a single machine running Windows XP; likewise, XP and Vista can run on a machine running Linux, and so on. There is a free for personal or evaluation use proprietary version and a GNU General Public License (GPL) version.

Features:
Modularity
Virtual machine descriptions in XML
Guest Additions for Windows and Linux
Shared folders
Virtual USB Controllers
Remote Desktop Protocol
USB over RDP

Whats New:
VirtualBox 5.1 (released 2016-07-12)

VMM: emulate even more MMIO and shadow pagetable exits without going back to user mode
GUI: overall migration to Qt5 (bug #11775)
GUI: passive API event listener improving the VM GUI performance and response time
Audio: added HDA (High Definition Audio) support for newer Linux guests
Audio: added on-demand timers which should improve the overall performance and reduce the CPU consumption
Audio: more fine-grained volume control for the AC'97 emulation, which now also takes the master volume control into account
