VirtualBox 5.1.10 is here exactly two months after the previous point release, namely VirtualBox 5.1.8, and we have some good news for Linux users, as Oracle added initial support for the upcoming Linux 4.9 kernel, which will be released in the second week of December 2016. It also fixes the Linux kernel module override rule in Linux Additions.
Now, it looks like VirtualBox 5.1.10 adds a bunch of GUI improvements that should enhance the usability of the software. For example, Oracle’s developers tried to address various issues in the Unscaled HiDPI Output mode, implement Print Screen-related actions to the VM Input menu, and patch a crash/hang bug with accessibility support enabled.
Among other noteworthy improvements that landed in VirtualBox 5.1.10, we can mention better handling of inserting the Guest Additions ISO image by also attempting to use the rest of the available virtual optical drives, and it’s now possible to specify the USB revision in hexadecimal format in the USB filter settings dialog.
