Changes and improvements :

  • Paravirtualization Support : Oracle VM VirtualBox is able to expose a paravirtualization interface to facilitate accurate and efficient execution of software.

  • Bi-Directional Drag and Drop Support for Windows

  • Disk Image Encryption : Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0 allows for encrypted virtual disk images by leveraging AES algorithm in XTS mode (128-bit or 256-bit); since the DEK is stored as part of the virtual machine configuration file, encryption introduces a further security feature that will ask for a password while starting the virtual machine.
