     259This version is a major update. The following major new features were added: 
     260 * Support for cloning of VMs (bug #5853, see the manual for more information): full clones can be created through the GUI and VBoxManage, linked clones only through VBoxManage 
     261 * GUI: enhanced wizard for creating new virtual disks 
     262 * GUI: new wizard for copying virtual disks 
     263 * GUI: keep the aspect ratio in scale mode (Windows and OSX hosts only; bug #7822)

     265 * Experimental support for PCI passthrough for Linux hosts, see the manual for more information 
     266 * Windows guests: Experimental WDDM graphics driver, supporting Windows Aero (bug #4607) and providing Direct3D support using a cleaner approach (no need to install the guest drivers in Safe Mode anymore) 
     267 * Guest Additions: status of modules and features can now be queried separately by the frontends 
     268 * Networking: new network attachment mode "Generic Driver", which offers an open plugin architecture for arbitrary and separately distributable virtual network implementations 
     269 * Host-only Networking: fixed host crash in kernels prior to 2.6.29  
     270 * New Networking Mode UDP Tunnel: allows to interconnect VMs running on different hosts easily and transparently, see the manual for more information 
     271 * Experimental support for SATA hard disk hotplugging available with VBoxManage 
     272 * Solaris hosts: New Crossbow based bridged networking driver for Solaris 11 build 159 and above 
     273In addition, the following items were fixed and/or added: 
     274 * VMM: more SMP timer fixes 
     275 * VMM: fixed sporadic recompiler crashes with SMP guests 
     276 * VMM: many small fixes 
     277 * GUI: when reverting to a snapshot, ask for taking a snapshot of the current state 
     278 * GUI: added a View menu 
     279 * GUI: added a setting for the promiscuous mode policy for internal networks, bridged networks and host-only networks 
     280 * GUI: added slider for setting the CPU execution cap allowing to limit the amount of CPU time spent for the execution of the guest, see the manual for more information. 
     281 * GUI: the VM description is editable during the runtime of a VM (bug #1551) 
     282 * GUI: added proxy settings (bug #2870) 
     283 * GUI: made the number of SATA ports configurable 
     284 * GUI: decrease time before showing the VM configuration dialog 
     285 * VBoxManage: more convenient configuration of storage controller attachments by automatically determining the port or device parameter when a storage controller has only one port or device per port 
     286 * VBoxManage: changed syntax of the guestcontrol command group, fixed various bugs, removed obsolete options 
     287 * VBoxBalloonCtrl: new service for automatic dynamic adjustment of the balloon size for running VMs 
     288 * Settings: machine names and snapshot names are not allowed to be a valid UUID 
     289 * Settings: provide better diagnostics if a single medium is used twice in a VM configuration 
     290 * Settings: provide better diagnostics for errors in medium create/merge/clone operations, and fix memory leaks in error cases 
     291 * Storage: ATA/SATA drives can be marked as non-rotational, i.e. the guest OS will detect them as a SSD if supported, which can improve performance 
     292 * Storage: virtual CD/DVD images will be detached if the guest ejects the medium, unless the drive is marked to handle ejects only on a temporary basis 
     293 * Storage: the medium UUID can be changed again when attaching a medium for the first time, which allows using images which are exact duplicates including the UUID 
     294 * Storage: fixed possible data corruption under certain circumstances with VHD and Parallels images (bug #9150) 
     295 * Storage: fixed unnecessary expansion when cloning differential images in VDI format

     311 * VBoxSVC: fixed regression when several clients trigger autostart simultaneously

     314 * Sources: fixed USB 2.0 support using extension packs for non-official builds 
     315 * Mac OS X hosts: fixed non-VT-x mode on Lion hosts
