Oracle released a new major version of the virtualization solution VirtualBox for all supported operating systems on December 18, 2018.

VirtualBox 6.0.0 is available for 64-bit versions of Windows, OS X, Linux, and Solaris. The last version of VirtualBox that supports 32-bit hosts is version 5.2 which is supported until July 2020. Downloads are available on the official project website for both versions.

Note that the size of the VirtualBox installer nearly doubled on Windows from about 100 Megabytes in previous versions to more than 200 Megabytes in version 6.0.0. The management process uses the same amount of RAM when run, however.

VirtualBox 6.0.0 can be installed over existing installations; the new version should pick up existing virtual machines automatically. Installed extensions may need to be updated as well. VirtualBox displays a prompt on start when that is the case so that the updates can be downloaded and installed right away.
