[vbox-dev] Announcement: VirtualBox 5.0.17 r106108 Guest Additions update for Linux guests

Here is an update to the post-5.0.16 update of the Guest Additions to 
allow them to run on Linux guests running X.Org without root rights, and 
providing a few 3D fixes. These changes are intended to be a part of any 
future VirtualBox releases higher than 5.0.16. This update with source 
code is also available from the download page:


Notable issues which I believe we have fixed since the previous upload are:

* Black screen after installation on Oracle Linux/Redhat Enterprise 
Linux/CentOS 7.2
* Screen corruption immediately after installation
* Failure to resize automatically with guests running the LXDE desktop
