today Oracle released VirtualBox 3.2.6, a maintenance release of
VirtualBox 3.2 which improves stability and fixes regressions.

This release introduces a check for the file system where the disk
images are installed and automatically enables the VM host I/O cache
if an ext4 filesystem or an xfs filesystem is detected. The purpose
of this check is to work around a bug in the Linux kernel which can
lead to data corruption under certain circumstances. Only Linux hosts
are affected.

See the Changelog at


for a complete list of all changes. You can download the binaries


Kind regards,

Dr.-Ing. Frank Mehnert
