Oracle Releases VirtualBox 6.1.2 with Initial Support for Linux Kernel 5.5

VirtualBox 6.1.2 is here to add a month’s worth of new bug fixes and improvements to the popular virtualization software developed by Oracle, adding initial support for the upcoming Linux 5.5 kernel series, which should hit the streets later this month. For now, Guest Additions are not supported. For the Linux platform, VirtualBox 6.1.2 also improves resize and multi-monitor handling for virtual machines using VMSVGA in Linux guests. However, Oracle notes the fact that the “do not disable a monitor “in the middle”” issue is still present in this release and it causes confusion for users.
