VirtualBox 5.1.16 Released with Initial Linux Kernel 4.11 Support, Bug Fixes

VirtualBox 5.1.16 is now the most advanced version of the application, and it comes approximately seven weeks after the VirtualBox 5.1.14 maintenance update. The most important change implemented for Linux users is initial support for the upcoming Linux 4.11 kernel, whose development just started a few days with the first Release Candidate. Also for Linux users, VirtualBox 5.1.16 improves the installers to no longer rebuild kernel modules if not required. The Linux Additions were improved with the implementation of a vboxsf FS modules alias, as well as support for compiling the “shared folders” kernel module on GNU/Linux distributions running Linux kernel 4.10.
