Please do NOT use this VirtualBox Release Candidate on production machines!
A VirtualBox Release Candidate is past feature freeze, so it is more 
stable than a Beta release. It is meant for evaluation and testing purposes.

You can download the binaries here:


(Note: At this time the upload of the packages is still in progress.)

Please do NOT open bug reports at our public bugtracker but use our 
VirtualBox Beta/Release Candidate Feedback forum at


to report any problems with the Release Candidate. Please concentrate on 
reporting regressions since VirtualBox 4.1.18!

Version 4.2 will be a new major release. Please see the forum at


for the extended announcement and for a preliminary list of all changes
since VirtualBox 4.1.18.

Thanks for your help!
