Release: innotek VirtualBox 1.5

German startup innotek releases today new version of its desktop virtualization solution for Windows and Linux (and Mac OS in the near timeframe): VirtualBox 1.5.

Competition against VMware and Parallels is hard, mostly because of newest interface improvements both companies launched in the Apple market, and which will probably port on other versions of their products. So innotek is trying to beat competitors on time, and introduces seamless window capability in this new release of VirtualBox.

VirtualBox 1.5 also introduces support for 64bit Windows host OS and IBM OS/2 guest OS.

Complete list of changes is available here. The product is available free of charge as usual, under GPL license, here.

The Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.
