Boxes 3.8.1

Recommended Posts



Boxes 3.8.1 is now available. Changes since 3.8.0:


- Don't crash on missing udev properties.

- Enable usb-redirection by default.

- Allow rebooting the box on changes to system properties, even if box is in

saved state.

- Automatically delete under-install/live VM on source media deletion.

- Use correctly sized logos.

- Avoid weird glitches in UI by actually cancelling the connecting process when

user goes back to collection view.

- Add '--enable-ovirt' configure option.

- Delete box configuration even when box is deleted by another UI.
