> - Fix build error when compiling in debug mode on FreeBSD HEAD
> - SemEvent?-r0drv/FreeBSD: Don't use tvtohz for an infinite timeout.
> - Some FreeBSD relate typos
> - Enable shared OpenGL service. Completely untested due to lack of
> appropriate hardware but it compiles at least
> - Add support for shared clipboards. Requires libXt
> - FreeBSD: Implement preemption API for guest SMP and enable
> it (slightly tested). Add neccessary RTMP* methods in userspace
> for the frontends to detect the number of CPUs
> - Runtime/semevent-r0drv-freebsd: Use a sleeping mutex
> instead of a spinlock to fix the problems users are seeing
> (assertions with debugging enabled) while still being able
> to run on 100Hz hosts. No problems detected so far and Solaris
> doesn't use a spin mutex in this code too so it shouldn't do
> any harm (keeping fingers crossed)space for the frontends to
> detect the number of CPUs
> - Add support for curl
> - Add VBoxSharedClipboard
> Ports Changes;
> - Force guestadditions version to 2.2.4
> - Removed Qt3 include replacements (already upstream)
> - Removed cosmetic X11 include path patch
> Please make SURE, your world and kernel is in sync and you've read
> the pkg-messages. Also please unload the kernel module before
> you update the port ;-).
> Many thx to all Vbox Devs, All supporters, my nice team! :-)
> Happy Testing!
ok, so some time has passed, but virtualbox-2.2.51r20457.tar.gz is no
longer available, there is a ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/virtualbox-2.2.51r20457.tar.bz2
then again in ports/emulatores/virtualbox the version is 3.0.51r22226,
can someone please explain?
