VirtualBox 6.0.4 Is Out with Initial Support for Linux Kernel 5.0, Improvements

VirtualBox 6.0.4 comes only two weeks after the VirtualBox 6.0.2 point release to fix some urgent issues, but also add a handful of enhancements to the popular virtualization platform, starting with initial support for Linux kernel 5.0, which should be available at the end of February or early March 2019. This means that VirtualBox 6.0.4 can be compiled against Linux kernel 5.0 on Linux hosts and guests. Other enhancements implemented in the VirtualBox 6.0.4 release include support for Shanghai/Zhaoxin CPUs, support for correctly handle command-line arguments in the user interface, which received quite a bunch of improvements for the machine manager window, storage selector window, virtual optical disk creator, as well as the log viewer window, and various other small fixes.
