Update out of debian repository

Description

Is it just my impression or the intrepid repository is still lacking the 2.1.2 version of VirtualBox?

The Virtualbox GUI itself already alerted about the new version but my apt-get updates still lack the update. Quite weird.

After switching to VirtualBox 2.1.0, we renamed the package to virtualbox-2.1. This allows users to use the older version 2.0.6 if 2.1.2 (the latest version) has some specific problem. It is not possible to have two different versions of the same package inside the same Debian repository.

Make sure that your package installer removes the old 2.0.x package (virtualbox-2.0) when you select virtualbox-2.1 for installing.
