Boxes 3.7.4

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


Announcing another release in the 3.7.x unstable cycle. Changes since 3.7.3:


- Make use of new libosinfo API to avoid starting installation in language

unsupported by installer media.

- Add smartcard support. If --enable-smartcard support is passed we create new

VMs with smartcard support, or let you add it to old VMs.

- Ensure driver files cache is up2date and unique.

- Once installation is complete,

- Eject CDROM.

- Delete installer files.

- Make the progressbar on wizard's preparation page more useful by showing

progress of media detection and drivers download and keeping user informed

about current activity.

- Adapt to Clutter 1.12 and Gtk+ 3.2.

- Added/updated/fixed translations:

- Assamese

- Belarusian

- Bulgarian

- Estonian

- Galician

- Hebrew

- Hungarian

- Lithuanian

- Norwegian bokmål

- Polish
